14 post offices in shopping centres throughout Latvia will extend their opening hours and resume work at weekends from the 16th of May 2020

A number of Latvijas Pasts post offices in shopping centres throughout the country will extend their opening hours on weekdays and resume customer service on Saturdays and/or Sundays from the 16th of May 2020. Latvijas Pasts urges its customers to evaluate the need to visit the post offices and to make maximum use of the remote application for postal services.

Starting this weekend, the 16th of May, 14 post offices in various shopping centres in Riga, Daugavpils, Jelgava, Liepāja, Mārupe and Ozolnieki will extend their opening hours on weekdays and resume customer service on Saturdays and/or Sundays according to the working hours set by the shopping centre. A list of the post offices which will change their opening hours and resume work at weekends is available here.

As security measures must be strictly observed during the emergency situation which is still in force, Latvijas Pasts urges customers to be understanding and not to visit the post office if they have symptoms of the disease, to wait for their turn in the queue outside the post office, to enter the post office only when the service counter has become available, not to crowd and to keep a distance of two metres, as well as to use personal protective equipment and to practice proper hygiene.

In order to avoid spending more time than necessary at a post office, Latvijas Pasts encourages you to make maximum use of the company’s mobile application, which allows you to apply for the service remotely and show up at the post office just in time for receiving your service, as well as to redirect inbound registered items to one of the Latvijas Pasts parcel lockers. You can apply for services remotely in 86 largest and busiest post offices throughout Latvia; the list of these post offices is available here

Latvijas Pasts continues to assess the optimal provision of post office operations and delivery of items, taking into account the emergency situation.
