Poland – Acceptance of international mail – updated list of countries, international air traffic and service information

2020-06-27

The designated operator of Poland, Poczta Polska, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that updated measures aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19 have been implemented in Poland and will continue to affect its services.

These updated measures came into force on 28 May 2020, and will remain in force until further notice. There are no significant changes and they are as follows: registered letter-post items without advice of delivery can be delivered to the addressee's mailbox (the delivery is recorded in the IT system), while parcels and insured parcels, including advice of delivery and courier items (EMS), are delivered with signature. If the recipient refuses to sign, the last four digits from the ID document, as well as the type of ID and the exact name of the receiver, are placed in the delivery card by the courier/postman. Registered letter-post items with advice of delivery are delivered to the addressee or authorized person after verification of their ID document (the last four digits from the ID and the type of ID are placed in the delivery card as well the exact name of the receiver instead of signature). These measures and administrative or other decisions that may exclude particular areas from delivery of mail will of course affect operations and the quality of services provided by Poczta Polska.

International air traffic is opened but operations are limited to several airlines at the international airport in Warsaw.

Poczta Polska will continue to do its utmost to develop its cooperation with other countries as far as possible.
