Residents in the UAE can now use postal and international premium services to Israel. The facility was made available after Emirates Post Group added Israel to its global operations network.

Emirates Post has tied up with its local counterpart, Israel Post, to facilitate access to cities and destinations across the country, providing a reliable channel to the new market.

The move follows the historic peace deal to normalise relations between the UAE and Israel on September 15, 2020 and establishment of full diplomatic relations between the countries.

“The signing of the Abraham Accords was a historic moment, and in line with the vision of our leadership, we believe this new channel of communication will further collaboration between our two nations. Our service will complement the promising business and trade relations between the two countries and will bolster tolerance, communication, and exchange between the two cultures. In addition, the UAE and Israel are both forward-thinking countries and the partnership with Israel Post will also lead to an exchange of ideas, encourage innovation, and help develop the sector,” said Abdulla M. Alashram, Group CEO of Emirates Post Group.

Postal services are currently available to numerous countries including International Premium Services to over 190 destinations. With the Covid-19 pandemic still impacting international travel and operations, Emirates Post continues to work with its partners on resuming postal services to as many destinations as possible.
