Myanmar – Measures taken to minimize the spread of COVID-19

19 March, 2020

The designated operator of Myanmar, Myanmar Post, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the government of Myanmar has imposed national measures to combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). These measures include the suspension of all passenger flights from and to Yangon International Airport, with effect from 18 March 2020 until 30 April 2020 inclusive.

Owing to this situation, Myanmar Post will be unable to provide outbound mail services (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) to international destinations and is therefore ceasing, with immediate effect, to accept letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items until passenger flights resume at Yangon International Airport.

Myanmar Post confirms that domestic operations, including mail delivery, are still functioning under adapted conditions, and asks all Union member countries, insofar as is possible, to continue to send their mail dispatches to Myanmar via air-cargo freighter.

Myanmar Post thanks all other Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them on any changes to the situation via EmIS.
