Djibouti’s post advises that the government provisionally plans to reopen airports and allow resumption of passenger flights effective Sept. 1. Specific cargo flights are designated for sending mail to the country. The post also is modifying mail delivery procedures. A signature is no longer required upon delivery and items normally requiring a signature will be delivered using methods that minimize direct contact. These measures are aimed at reducing spread of COVID-19 and protecting staff and customers.
Djibouti’s post is declaring a situation of force majeure due to suspension of all international flights, with the exception of cargo flights, in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, until further notice. Customers should expect delays in mail handling and delivery until sufficient transport capacity becomes available.
