Slovakia’s post advises that collection of signature on delivery has resumed. Deliveries will not be made to customers who are quarantined. Items are delivered to an outdoor location if possible, and recipients are required to observe certain social distancing rules. Delivery staff will not deliver items to individual apartments. In addition, standard collection arrangements have resumed but with a longer collection period. Slovakia’s post is able to send mail only to countries within the European Union (with a few exceptions) and to a number of other countries that include the United States.

Slovakia’s post advises that it has taken measures to eliminate customer interaction at the doorstep and meet physical distancing requirements in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19). It has suspended collection of a signature on delivery for inbound registered letters, which are now placed in the addressee’s mailbox and details recorded in delivery books. If this is not possible, items will be stored at the delivery post office. The same applies to ordinary mail, including small packages. An exception are inbound registered items with value-added services. These deliveries have been suspended and items will be held at the post office. Additional measures also are in place. Domestic operations, including mail delivery, continue under these adapted conditions.

Slovakia’s post is able to send mail only to countries within the European Union (with the exception of Cyprus, Greece, Ireland, Malta and Spain), and to Belarus, Canada, Serbia, Switzerland, Ukraine, United Kingdom and United States. It will continue to accept letters and packages sent to destinations for which transport capacity is available. Transit mail cannot be accepted to any destination country unless bilaterally agreed upon.
