Myanmar – Suspension of dispatch of postal items

25 May, 2020

Myanmar Post asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the Government of Myanmar has imposed national measures to combat the spread of COVID-19. These include the suspension of all passenger flights to and from Yangon International Airport until 31 May 2020.

Given this situation, Myanmar Post is unable to provide outbound mail services (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) to international destinations and is therefore ceasing, with immediate effect, to accept outbound letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items until passenger flights resume at Yangon Airport.

However, domestic operations, including mail delivery, are still functioning under modified conditions, and Myanmar Post asks all Union member countries, insofar as is possible, to continue sending their mail dispatches to Myanmar via cargo flights.

Myanmar Post thanks all other Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them on any changes to the situation via EmIS.
