Lithuania – Extension of national lockdown

03 May, 2021


Lietuvos paštas, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the Lithuanian Government has extended the full-country lockdown until 31 May 2021, in order to control the spread of the coronavirus.

While the lockdown remains in place, postal services will continue to operate under certain restrictions, including a reduced workforce to minimize physical contact between people. Items normally requiring the addressee's signature upon delivery can be handed over without signature.

The processing and delivery of all types of inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) will continue to be affected, and Lietuvos paštas is unable to guarantee compliance with the usual delivery standards. Therefore, the situation of force majeure will continue to apply.

Lietuvos paštas thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
