Djibouti – Update on measures to limit the spread of COVID-19

20 Mai, 2020

La Poste de Djibouti S.A. wishes to inform other Union member countries that the government provisionally plans to reopen airports and allow the resumption of passenger flights from 1 September 2020.

Consequently, other Union member countries and their designated operators wishing to send their letter-post, parcel-post or EMS items to Djibouti are asked to use the following cargo flights:

  • Qatar Airways QR 8711 from Doha every Tuesday;
  • Air France AF 674 from Paris Charles de Gaulle every Thursday.

La Poste de Djibouti is also modifying its mail delivery procedures.  A signature is no longer required upon delivery, and items normally requiring a signature will be delivered using methods that minimize direct contact.  These measures are being introduced with immediate effect; they aim to reduce the risk of propagation of COVID-19 and protect staff and customers.

La Poste de Djibouti thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding; it will provide updates on the situation via EmIS.
