The designated operator of Sri Lanka, the Department of Posts has advised that owing to the rapid spread of COVID-19, the Government of Sri Lanka has extended the current island-wide travel restrictions until 14 June 2021.
International airports remain open to cargo flights and a minimal number of passenger flights. All inbound mail will be transported to the Colombo office of exchange, operating with the limited workforce available. The processing and delivery of all inbound mail, as well as the transportation of outbound mail, will be heavily impacted by the current situation. The Department of Posts is, therefore unable to guarantee compliance with the agreed delivery standards for all mail categories.
