Latvia

Latvia Post has suspended processing of all inbound and outbound international mail conveyed via passenger air transport until further notice. The government of Latvia has declared a state of emergency in response to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). As a result, Latvia Post is declaring a situation of force majeure and will strive to find alternative means to convey its outbound mail by truck or cargo air transport. Customers are advised that there may be significant delays in the meantime. For preventive purposes, shipments are stored in a warehouse for 72 hours prior to transport. The post also will store postal items at its offices for up to 60 days to alleviate customers’ concerns about having to collect items immediately, and also to help to reduce the flow of customers at post offices.
