Iran National Post has advised that the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran has declared a reduction of public services from March 24, 2020, to avoid the spread of COVID-19. Service delivery standards cannot be guaranteed. Owing to insufficient transport capacity following cancellation and reduction of many international flights, Iran Post has limited sending of outbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) to a growing number of destinations. As a result it is declaring a situation of force majeure, with immediate effect and ceasing to accept mails to those destinations until sufficient transport capacity becomes available.
