The designated operator of Samoa, Samoa Post, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, owing to the severe impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) worldwide, the Government of Samoa has declared a state of emergency, with effect from Saturday, 21 March 2020. Samoa has therefore closed its borders and suspended all flights in and out of the country.
Samoa Post will be closed from Thursday, 26 March 2020 until further notice; no inbound or outbound mail will be processed during this period.
Samoa 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.
