UPDATE 41: International Mail Service Disruptions Due to COVID-19

On May 13, 2020, the Postal Service™ received a notification from Correos y Telégrafos, the designated postal operator of Spain, advising that the Spanish Government has extended the state of alert until May 24, 2020. As a result, Correos y Telégrafos is unable to guarantee compliance with delivery standards for items requiring signature and major impacts on processing and distribution of all international mail should be expected until the situation returns to normal.

This service disruption 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 update mailers regarding new service disruptions as they are received. For a full list of international service disruptions, please visit
