New Caledonia – Update on measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus

30 april, 2020

The designated operator of New Caledonia, OPT-NC, wishes to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators of the following measures:

  • Import/export: Restrictions remain in place in New Caledonia with regard to air and sea transport, which continues to have an impact on inbound and outbound postal shipments.
  • For all letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items requiring a signature on delivery:
  • At post offices:  Identity verification, where required, and signature by the recipient will resume as normal.
  • At the addressee's home:  Identity verification, where required, will resume as normal. Signature by addressees will also resume as normal, if addressees have their own pen, or will be replaced by the signature of the postman/woman with the agreement of the addressee (if the addressee does not agree, the item will be returned to a post office for collection).

OPT-NC thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
