Jamaica – Update on postal services

26 August, 2020


The designated operator of Jamaica, Jamaica Post, wishes to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that it is obliged to curtail its operations owing to the imposition of a national curfew from 19.00 each evening to 5.00 the following morning. This curfew, effective for an initial period from 22 August to 2 September 2020, is aimed at mitigating the resurgence of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout Jamaica.

As a result, working hours have been revised across the entire postal network. This will 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
