Jamaica – Update on postal services

14 September, 2020


The designated operator of Jamaica, Jamaica Post, wishes to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the Government of Jamaica has extended the national curfew until 23 September 2020, from 20.00 each evening to 5.00 the following morning, in order to mitigate the resurgence of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout Jamaica.

As a result, revised working hours continue to apply across the entire postal network. This will continue to have an impact on sorting operations, mail delivery and the dispatch of mail vans, as well as the timely provision of EDI messaging updates and responses to online customer inquiries.

The force majeure situation previously announced continues to apply, with an impact on quality of service for all types of mail, including inbound and outbound letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items.

Jamaica Post thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding, and will inform them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
