Slovenia – Further extension of lockdown

18 May, 2021


Pošta Slovenije, wishes to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, although the Government of Slovenia has eased certain restrictions with regard to hospitality, tourism, sports, culture and education, it has extended the lockdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic by a further 30 days, with effect from 17 May 2021.

Pošta Slovenije continues to provide postal services in line with national public health guidelines and restrictions, but is operating with a reduced workforce. The processing and delivery of all types of inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) continues to be affected, and Pošta Slovenije is unable to guarantee compliance with the agreed standards. The acceptance of outbound mail items (letter post, parcel post and EMS) for some destinations remains subject to transport availability.

Therefore, the situation of force majeure previously declared is being extended until further notice, and the restrictions announced in previous EmIS messages continue to apply.

Pošta Slovenije thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
