French Polynesia – Lockdown

27 August, 2021


The designated operator of French Polynesia, OPT PF – FARE RATA, wishes to inform other Union member ‎countries and their designated operators that a lockdown has been declared in French Polynesia, effective from 23 August 2021 for a period of two weeks, in response to the rapid spread of the Delta variant. As a consequence, the processing and delivery of all incoming mail will be severely disrupted. In the first instance, the retention periods for letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items will be extended and, if necessary, OPT PF – FARE RATA will propose alternative solutions with regard to delivery. OPT PF – FARE RATA 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.
