Korea (Rep.) – Suspension of mail exchanges with Australia and Egypt

11 March, 2020

Dear Sir/Madam,

The designated operator of Korea (Rep.), Korea Post, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, owing to the suspension of flights and restrictions resulting from the outbreak and rapid spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), it has:

– Partially suspended mail exchanges with Australia with effect from 9 March 2020. This measure concerns all mail products (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) except for parcel-post and EMS items destined to the international mail processing centre in Melbourne (AUMELA).

– Fully suspended mail exchanges (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) with Egypt with effect from 10 March 2020.

Korea Post thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
