Delay of mail delivery in New Zealand
November 15, 2016
The designated postal operator of New Zealand has informed us that the 7.5-magnitude earthquake on the South Island has disrupted postal operations in large areas of the country. The affected areas include the Wellington region and the South Island.
Delays in the delivery of all categories of mail (letters, parcels and EMS) are expected in the coming days.
Inbound mail from New Zealand may also be delayed for the same reason.
Thank you for your kind understanding of this situation.
