On May 19, 2020, the Postal Service™ received a notification from La Poste de Djibouti S.A., the designated postal operator of Djibouti, advising that in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, effective immediately a signature is no longer required upon delivery and items normally requiring a signature will be delivered using methods that minimize direct contact.

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.
