The Vatican’s post advises that it is classified as an essential service and will continue operations and providing services as far as it is able to. The current situation will have impacts in quality of service for all types of inbound and outbound mail. The post will no longer be able to guarantee delivery service standards and is invoking a case of force majeure for quality of service. Due to insufficient transport capacity following cancellation of many international flights, the post is also unable to transport mail to a growing number of countries and is therefore no longer accepting postal items destined for the countries concerned until further notice. The list of destination countries affected is liable to change on a daily basis.
