UPDATE 59: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On June 30, 2020, the Postal Service™ received a notification from Thailand Post that it is now able to send mail to many destinations, though delays are to be expected. In addition, Thailand Post has advised that it is accepting inbound mail as usual and delivering them in compliance with government-mandated measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, transit à découvert via Thailand and closed transit services for letter-post, parcel-post and Express Mail Service (EMS) items remain temporarily unavailable.

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
