Austria

Austria’s post advises that it is currently unable to send letters and parcels to a constantly increasing number of countries both inside and outside the European Union due to suspension of outbound flights. It will stop accepting mail for destinations where no transport capacities are available. Additionally, signature on delivery for inbound items will be suspended in order to avoid human contact. All items that require the addressee’s signature are now deposited in their mailbox or in a secure location with signature by the postal employee on their portable device. If delivered to the recipient in person, the employee will likewise sign on the recipient’s behalf. A situation of force majeure regarding quality of service has been declared until the situation has returned to normal.
