The designated operator of Guatemala, Correos y Telégrafos, asks us to inform the designated operators of other Union member countries of the state of postal services in Guatemala.

The procedure under way to enable Correos y Telégrafos to carry out its activities as designated operator and to hire additional staff is currently in its final phase. As a result, international letter-post, parcel-post and EMS services (inbound and outbound) will continue to be disrupted for at least another four months (end of June 2018).

Correos y Telégrafos asks operators to continue to hold items to be sent to Guatemala until services have been re-established.

Correos y Telégrafos thanks designated operators for their understanding and cooperation and will inform them once services have returned to normal.
