New Zealand Post has temporarily suspended all mail to and from China due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The delay is due to NZ Post's airline partners suspending flights into China.

"Given the current suspension of many airline services into China, NZ Post is currently not accepting any mail or parcels for delivery into China," the company said in a statement on its website.

"This temporary service suspension will be reviewed regularly and once China is able to receive mail and parcels, we will recommence sending these items."

NZ Post said people waiting for parcels from China should expect 'significant' delays.

"Chinese Government requirements have resulted in the suspension of many services and many senders within China have suspended business in an attempt to control the spread of Covid-19. The suspension of many flights which carry mail and parcels out of China is also contributing to these delays."
