UPDATE 145: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On March 16, 2021, the Postal Service™ received a notification from Pošta Slovenije, the designated operator of Slovenia, advising that the Slovenian Government has extended the formal declaration of a national COVID-19 epidemic for another 30 days. Pošta Slovenije will continue to provide postal services with a reduced workforce. Quality of service for all types of inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) will continue to be affected. Therefore, the situation of force majeure previously declared will continue to apply until further notice.

Unless otherwise noted, service updates to a particular country do not affect delivery of military and diplomatic mail.

This service update affects Priority Mail Express International® (PMEI), Priority Mail International® (PMI), First-Class Mail International® (FCMI), First-Class Package International Service® (FCPIS®), International Priority Airmail® (IPA®), International Surface Air Lift® (ISAL®), and M-Bag® items.

The DMM Advisory will continue to provide updates as they are received. For a full list of international service disruptions, please visit
