Macao, China – Update on the disruption of postal services

10 februari, 2020

The designated operator of Macao, China, Macau Post, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, in order to minimize the spread of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), the Macao Government has announced that all civil servants, other than those working for emergency and critical services, will remain exempted from working from 8 to 16 February 2020. As a consequence, Macau Post will provide limited basic postal services to the public during the above period. Owing to the closure of the Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal since 4 February 2020 and the recent flight delays/cancellations, delays are to be expected in the delivery of inbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items).

Macau Post thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
