Armenia – Measures to limit the spread of coronavirus

23 März, 2020

The designated operator of Armenia, “Haypost” CJSC, would like to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, owing to the suspension of flights resulting from the outbreak and spread of COVID-19, it expects serious delays in processing of inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel post and EMS items) from 19 March 2020 until further notice

This will have a major impact on operations and, consequently, on quality of service for all types of inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel post and EMS items). Haypost is therefore declaring a situation of force majeure and, for safety reasons, delivery may be performed via methods that restrict direct contact. For all letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items requiring signature on delivery, the addressee’s signature may be replaced in the signature field by the postman/postwoman’s signature, together with the delivery code.

These special measures are aimed at reducing the risk of the spread of the novel coronavirus, and keeping staff and customers safe by avoiding human contact.

Haypost thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. A further update will be sent via EmIS once the situation returns to normal.
