Portugal

Portugal’s post has implemented several measures to ensure the safety of both customers and staff to minimize spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Post offices will remain open in general. For domestic and inbound international items that would normally require a signature, the postal carrier will sign for delivery in place of the customer. Portugal’s post is no longer able to guarantee delivery times, observe standard rules for signature on delivery, or make tracking data available for all shipments. In addition, given the current uncertainty with regard to the international transport network, the post is suspending transit operations. Given the diminishing number of flights and reduced capacity, Portugal’s post is temporarily unable to send outbound international mail and parcels to many destinations outside of Europe, as well as to some European destinations. International and domestic operations will continue to operate normally as far as possible, however, a situation of force majeure is declared.
