Mauritius Post has advised that all post offices nationwide remain closed for at least two more weeks, i.e. until April 15, 2020, in order to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). A situation of force majeure has been declared and severe delays are to be expected in processing, transport and delivery of all classes of mail items due to the suspension of postal services and various flight cancellations. The collection of a signature on delivery of registered postal items has been suspended until further notice.

Additionally, all inquiries, including those handled electronically through the Internet-based systems for parcel-post, EMS and registered items, as well as telephone inquiries to call agents, are liable to be disrupted.
