Lithuania – Update on measures to limit the spread of COVID-19

06 April, 2021


The designated operator of Lithuania, 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 30 April 2021, in order to control the spread of the coronavirus.

While the lockdown is in place, postal services will continue to operate under certain restrictions, including a reduced workforce to minimize physical contacts 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 declared in EmIS 637/2020 will continue to apply.

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