Lebanon – Update on measures to combat COVID-19

30 July, 2020


​Further to EmIS 453/2020, the designated operator of Lebanon, LibanPost, wishes to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, in response to the latest increase in the number of Covid-19 cases, the Lebanese Government has declared a complete lockdown in the country from Thursday, 30 July to Monday, 3 August (end of day) and from Thursday, 6 August to Monday, 10 August (end of day). 

It should be noted that Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport (BEY) will remain open to cargo and commercial flights during the above-mentioned period (with additional sanitary controls) and that dispatches can continue to be sent to/from Lebanon.

While LibanPost's management and customer service unit will be closed during this period, post offices will remain open and the distribution network will remain active and continue to process mail flows, albeit with reduced capacity. LibanPost will make every effort to process inbound and outbound mail during this period, but the situation will clearly affect quality of service in respect of all mail classes (letter-mail, parcels and EMS).

LibanPost thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding, and would be glad to provide them with further information via the e-mail address intl_affairs@libanpost.com
