An Post is currently limited in its ability to send outbound mail to some countries and has stopped accepting mail for those countries until they indicate they are able to accept it and sufficient transport capacity becomes available. Details of these destinations can be found at


An Post advises that it has suspended signature on delivery for inbound items to reduce the risk of  spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and keep staff and customers safe. Delivery will be conducted via methods that limit direct contact.

The post is no longer able to meet all of its contractual obligations, in particular quality delivery standards, to a number of international destinations due to the suspension of airline flights. Therefore, all contractually agreed sanctions, especially those concerning penalty payments, are suspended until these flights return to their normal operating schedule.
