New Zealand – One-off national public holiday

15 September, 2022


New Zealand Post, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the Government of New Zealand has announced a one-off national public holiday to mark the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

On Monday, 26 September 2022, all parts of New Zealand will observe a national public holiday. This public holiday will be observed in 2022 only, and not in future years.

Postal services and post office opening hours are affected by public holidays. Post offices will generally be closed, and no mail or parcel deliveries will take place, including express items. 

Designated operators may wish to advise their customers to allow for additional delivery time when sending items to New Zealand.
