Thailand – Measures to limit the spread of COVID-19

18 March, 2021


Thailand Post, would like to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the Government of Thailand has declared a state of emergency for the whole country, but five provinces in particular: Samut Sakhon, Bangkok, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani and Samut Prakan.

The public health measures and restrictions in place are impacting international inbound and outbound postal operations, and a situation of force majeure is invoked with respect to quality of service until circumstances return to normal.

Furthermore, owing to the reduced number of outbound flights, transit services (both open and closed) for all categories of mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) remain suspended. In the case of dispatches received in transit during the suspension, Thailand Post will contact partner Posts to agree on further arrangements.

Thailand Post thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
