Senegal – Delivery delays

24 März, 2020

The designated operator of Senegal, La Poste du Sénégal, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, in view of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, measures to close the borders and restrict travel have been implemented by the Government of Senegal and the airlines.

These decisions will have a significant impact on shipment and delivery times for letter post, parcel post and packets. Consequently, La Poste du Sénégal is unable to guarantee compliance with delivery standards and is invoking a situation of force majeure with regard to quality of service.

La Poste du Sénégal will continue to offer postal services insofar as possible. It thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding, and will update them via EmIS when the situation has returned to normal.
