UPDATE 152: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19
On April 2, 2021, OPT-NC, the designated operator of New Caledonia, provided notification that the confinement measures in place in New Caledonia will gradually be lifted April 2 to April 11, 2021. As a result, signature on delivery will be modified as follows:
- Letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items requiring the addressee's signature on delivery at OPT-NC post office counters will once again be handed over against the addressee's signature and, as appropriate, verification of the addressee's identity.
- Letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items requiring the addressee's signature on delivery at the addressee's home will be delivered and signed by OPT-NC postman/woman in agreement with the addressee and following verification of the addressee's identity as appropriate. Should the addressee not agree to the postman/women signing the proof of delivery, the item will be made available for collection at an OPT-NC post office. This measure will be put into place from April 6 – 11, 2021.
Unless otherwise noted, service updates to a particular country do not affect delivery of military and diplomatic mail.
This service update affects Priority Mail Express International® (PMEI), Priority Mail International® (PMI), First-Class Mail International® (FCMI), First-Class Package International Service® (FCPIS®), International Priority Airmail® (IPA®), International Surface Air Lift® (ISAL®), and M-Bag® items.
