UPDATE 154: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On April 7, 2021, the Postal Service™ received a notification from Latvijas Pasts the designated operator of

Latvia advising that the Latvian Government has lifted the state of emergency effective April 7, 2021. As a result, certain restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have been relaxed, and the situation of force majeure previously declared is closed. However, owing to the cancellation of flights and certain safety measures that remain in place, the processing of inbound and outbound postal items may still be subject to significant delays.

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.
