Slovenská Pošta had advised that the state of emergency previously announced has now ended. However, the restrictions in terms of service standards and application of force majeure announced in previous EmIS messages remain in place. Slovenská Pošta thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
Pošta Slovenije has advised that, although the Government of Slovenia has eased certain restrictions with regard to hospitality, tourism, sports, culture and education, it has extended the lockdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic by a further 30 days, with effect from 17 May 2021.
Pošta Slovenije continues to provide postal services in line with national public health guidelines and restrictions, but is operating with a reduced workforce. The processing and delivery of all types of inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) continues to be affected, and Pošta Slovenije is unable to guarantee compliance with the agreed standards. The acceptance of outbound mail items (letter post, parcel post and EMS) for some destinations remains subject to transport availability.
Therefore, the situation of force majeure previously declared is being extended until further notice, and the restrictions announced in previous EmIS messages continue to apply.
Thailand Post has advised that the situation at the Suvarnabhumi office of exchange (OE) following the resumption of operations on 6 May 2021.
In accordance with the measures and guidelines set out by the Ministry of Public Health, some staff members are in self-quarantine. As a result of the reduced workforce, there are backlogs at the OE warehouse, resulting in mail processing delays for both inbound and outbound mail.
Staff are making every effort to clear the backlogs. However, Thailand Post suggests that designated operators inform their customers of possible delays resulting from this situation.
Post Fiji Ltd has confirmed that owing to the coronavirus pandemic and though some flights are possible for medical purposes, most international commercial flights to and from Fiji have been disrupted until further notice with effect from 20 April 2021. Post Fiji is therefore experiencing significant disruption in its daily operations, which has led to disruption of collection and deliveries for all international mail categories (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) and services. Post Fiji thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
Nepal Post has confirmed that the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has extended the suspension of international flights until midnight 31 May 2021.

Two flights per week will be permitted between Nepal and India under the air travel bubble arrangement effective until 31 May, subject to certain conditions. The partial lockdown has already been extended until 27 May 2021. These measures may result in delays in the collection, transportation and delivery of mails. Nepal Post will continue to be unable to accept outbound mails to countries other than India, until such time as the passenger flights normally used to transport mail are resumed. Nepal Post thanks other Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
