Madagascar – Update on measures to limit the spread of COVID-19

05 May, 2021


Paositra Malagasy, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, in order to limit the spread of the South African COVID-19 variant, the Government of Madagascar has declared a health state of emergency.

In this connection, the administration has introduced new restrictions and closed access to certain regions of the country with effect from 3 to 16 May 2021.

In view of these government restrictions, passenger flights have been suspended. Cargo flights will, however, continue to operate, as well as the postal services that depend thereon.

Under these circumstances, Paositra Malagasy is currently unable to guarantee quality of service for inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items), or to meet standards for export and delivery of EMS items. While delays are to be expected, mail will, however, continue to be delivered.

Paositra Malagasy thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
