The designated operator of Israel, Israel Postal Company, would like to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, owing to the emergence of more new cases of COVID-19 in Israel, restrictions regarding addressee signatures and physical distancing between staff and customers remain in place, there is still a shortage of postal staff throughout the country, and the return to normal has been suspended.
Consequently, delays may still occur in the processing and delivery of all types of letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items. Regarding outbound mail, the processing of items may still be subject to delays due to the cancellation and reduction of flights. Consequently, the restrictions set out in EmIS 135/2020 and 184/2020 regarding addressee signature, service standards and application of force majeure remain in place. Israel Postal Company would like to thank all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
