Mauritius – End of national lockdown

04 juni, 2020

Mauritius Post Ltd wishes to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the sanitary curfew imposed by the Government of Mauritius due to COVID-19 was lifted at midnight on Saturday, 30 May 2020. Most economic activities have now resumed, but with some restrictions.

All postal activities are operational, but the government's health directives are being strictly observed.

Owing to the cancellation and suspension of flights, outbound mails will remain subject to delays. Mauritius Post is currently unable to send letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items to a number of countries. Therefore, the force majeure situation is being extended until further notice.

However, Mauritius Post is using capacity on special passenger flights to send mails to France twice a week.

Designated operators wishing to send their postal mails by sea freight to Mauritius can do so under the UPU surface mail regulations, pending the resumption of flights.

Mauritius Post thanks Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will provide further updates via EmiS.
