Sri Lanka Posts wishes to inform all other Union member countries and their designated operators that the restrictions imposed on postal operations as a result of the spread of COVID-19 have been lifted with effect from 8 March 2021.
Therefore, Sri Lanka Post has closed the force majeure case announced in EmIS 301/2020 with effect from 8 March 2021.
All mail processing and delivery operations on the island are back to normal as of 8 March. Bilaterally agreed transit services to the Maldives via Sri Lanka are also being provided as usual. However, outbound international mail operations will depend on the availability of air and sea transport.
The Department of Posts thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding and support given during the pandemic.
