The designated operator of Cape Verde, Correios de Cabo Verde, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, owing to the serious impact of COVID-19 worldwide, the government of Cabo Verde has declared an emergency for at least three weeks commencing 18 March 2020.
Cape Verde has closed its borders and suspended all flights to all EU countries, United States of America, Brazil, Senegal and Nigeria. All UPU member countries are advised to expect serious delays for both inbound and outbound mail as a result of the numerous flight reductions and cancellations. Correios de Cabo Verde will continue to operate during its normal working hours (Monday to Friday, 8.00 to 17.00 and Saturday, 8.00 to 13.00).
Correios de Cabo Verde wishes to thank all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
