Please be informed that due to the exit of the United Kingdom (the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) from the European Union, the following changes, which will take effect as of 1 January 2021, shall be taken into consideration:
- The consignments to the United Kingdom may require longer processing and delivery time due to customs formalities;
- Instead of 21% VAT rate, the VAT rate of 0% will be applied.
The performance of relevant customs formalities will be required for the incoming consignments from the United Kingdom, by clearing the consignments and paying the taxes enforced by the state. The conditions for the application of taxes and information on customs clearance is available from the State Revenue Service- www.vid.gov.lv or +371 67120000.
In connection with order of the Cabinet of Ministers No.655 of 6th November 2020 “Regarding Declaration of the Emergency Situation” 5.36 point: the condition laid down in the laws and regulations regarding the obligation of the addressee to sign in the area of the informative notice “date and signature” or on the sensor of the signature capturing device shall not be applicable during the emergency situation, if the postal operator, upon using consignment processing systems which prepare and aggregate the consignment receipt data, ensures documentary or electronic evidence that the particular consignment has been issued.
Signature on bills of lading and leasing documents will be requested in the previous order.
Please note that due to the spread of Covid-19 in Latvia and abroad the situation is still serious and affects the delivery process. International passenger flights are allowed at minimal level and with various additional conditions. Scheduled flights for parcel delivery may be canceled and we need to look for alternative delivery solutions. Deliveries are also hampered by congestion and queues in International transit airports which are also affected by the comming Christmas season. Each country has their own delivery conditions that prevent shipments from reaching recepients on time, delivery times and quality standards at international level are not in force.
Currently we are providing deliveries to all previously available destinations, items that cannot be sent abroad immediately are stored in Latvijas Pasts sorting center and will be sent out as soon as possible.
To limit the spread of Covid-19 from 3rd November 2020 payments with cash are suspended. Only payments with payment card will be accepted during courier deliveries. We invite you to understand this situation and take care of your own and your fellow people safety!
As international passenger transport is still allowed only at a minimum level and with various additional conditions due to measures to contain the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, the exchange of postal items with foreign countries is also delayed. Any timelines and quality standards for delivery of postal items have now been suspended at international level and are not in effect. Deliveries are also hampered by congestion of items and queues at international transit airports. In these exceptional circumstances Eksprespasts urges customers to be understanding and to take into account the longer delivery time of postal items, which cannot be determined precisely in all cases.
Eksprespasts currently provides deliveries to all previously available countries of the world, it must be taken into account, however, that route planning takes longer: items that cannot be dispatched immediately are stored in the sorting centre of Latvijas Pasts and sent as soon as it becomes possible.
Lai veicinātu COVID-19 vīrusa ierobežošanas pasākumus, saskaņā ar Itālijas Ministru prezidenta 2020.gada 4.marta lēmumu, sūtījumu piegādes tiks veiktas ar paaugstinātiem piesardzības pasākumiem. Sūtījumi, kuru izmērs to ļaus, tiks ievietoti pastkastītē. Ja sūtījuma izmērs būs lielāks, pastnieks nosūtīs saņēmējam aicinājumu doties uz pasta pakalpojumu sniegšanas vietu. Šie pasākumi tiek attiecināti uz visu valsts teritoriju līdz vīrusa izplatības beigām, kas pagaidām ir noteikta līdz 03.04.2020.. Itālijas Pasts informē, ka sūtījumu apstrādes un piegādes procesā darbinieku skaits tiek ierobežots līdz minimumam, tādēļ tiks ietekmēts sūtījumu piegādes ātrums.
