Bhutan – Heavy rain

26 June, 2019

Bhutan Post asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that it has been experiencing delivery challenges since Tuesday, 25 June 2019 as a result of the monsoon onset. The heavy rain has triggered landslides, which have blocked roads in most parts of the country, thus affecting the on-time delivery of all inbound mail (letter-post, parcels and EMS items). The Royal Government of Bhutan is doing its utmost to restore road connectivity in the affected areas. However, it will be difficult to do so until the weather conditions have improved and heavy rains are forecast for the next 24 hours.

Bhutan Post thanks all member countries and their designated operators for their understanding and will inform them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
