The designated operator of Barbados, Barbados Postal Service, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, owing to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), certain flights have been reduced and others cancelled. This has resulted in reduced transportation capacity and may also lead to delays with both inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items). For this reason, service delivery standards cannot be guaranteed and a situation of force majeure has been declared until the situation has returned to normal.
Barbados Postal Service 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.
