SVG Post, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that there is currently an emergency situation in the country following the explosive eruption of the La Soufrière volcano. An evacuation order was issued by the Prime Minister for people in the Red Zone of Saint Vincent and places in close proximity to the volcano. All postal staff are reported to be safe.
This emergency may affect the regular processing of mail coming into the country.
The situation is being monitored, and SVG Post is continuing to respond to the notices and advice given by the national emergency organization and scientific monitoring team.
SVG Post's disaster recovery team will meet and activate its plan in order to meet the needs of customers.
SVG Post thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
