Samoa’s post advises that the government has extended the state of emergency until July 4. As there is still only one cargo flight into and out of the country per week, the post requests that all mail to Samoa be sent as closed transit through New Zealand. Please note that, since the cargo flight arrives in the country late on Friday, all inbound mail is processed the following Monday, as Samoa’s post does not operate on the weekend. Inbound mail is not subject to three days’ quarantine upon arrival at the office of exchange.
