Israel Postal Company advises that due to new COVID-19 cases in Israel return to normal status has been suspended. Restrictions regarding addressee signatures and physical distancing between staff and customers remain in place and there is still a shortage of postal staff throughout the country. Delays may still occur in processing and delivery of all types of mail. All previously issued restrictions regarding addressee signature, service standards and application of force majeure remain in place.
Israel Postal Company advises some of the restrictions in place to prevent spread of COVID-19 have been lifted and the situation is returning to normal. Due to flight delays and cancellations, processing of outbound mail items may be subject to significant delays. Previously communicated restrictions on inbound and domestic mail regarding addressee signature, service standards and application of force majeure remain in place and may cause delays in the treatment and delivery of all types of mail.
Israel Postal Company advises it will continue to process incoming and outgoing mail, giving priority to premium services such as express mail service and PRIME, and will make every effort to ensure regular distribution of mail. However, due to government restrictions to minimize spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the post can no longer guarantee service delivery standards with designated operators and any interested third parties and is invoking force majeure with respect to any such standards. Additionally, a signature is no longer required for items requiring signature on delivery, and such items will be left at the door after being scanned and photographed to prove that delivery has been made. If possible, the name of the addressee will be recorded.
