Ukraine’s post advises that the previously announced country-wise state of emergency has been extended until May 11, 2020. As such, the measures previously announced continue to apply. Despite these circumstances, Ukraine’s post is maintaining its operations (with all measures taken to protect the staff and customers), accepting postal items destined for all countries and sending them using alternative routes.
Ukraine’s post advises customers to expect delays in the delivery of all inbound mail. Severe delays are also to be expected for outbound mail to all destinations as a result of flight suspensions. A situation of force majeure is declared until sufficient transport capacity becomes available. National and international operational centers remain open and continue to operate.
In order to minimize human contact, indirect methods will be implemented temporarily for the delivery of mail items that would ordinarily require the addressee’s signature on delivery. Written proof of delivery is temporarily suspended under these special circumstances.
Ukraine’s post advises that in addition to previously communicated measures taken as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, delays are to be expected in the delivery of all inbound mail and written proof of delivery is temporarily suspended. Registered postal items (other than summons) will be left in addressees' mailboxes, and inbound international postal items will be stored at post offices free of charge until the end of the state of emergency.
