Saudi Arabia – Suspension of the provision of written proof of delivery to addressees

13 March, 2020

The designated operator of Saudi Arabia, Saudi Post, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, in accordance with the measures taken to minimize the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the requirements of the government of Saudi Arabia, all letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items requiring signature on delivery will, for security reasons, provisionally be delivered to customers indirectly. Consequently, it will not be mandatory for Saudi Post to provide written proof of delivery and the delivery will be based on a code sent to the addressee’s mobile phone.

Saudi 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.
