UPDATE 62: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On July 3, 2020, the Postal Service received notifications from various postal operators regarding changes in international mail services due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The following countries have provided updates to certain mail services:

Montenegro UPDATE: Montenegro Post has advised that all conditions are back to normal and, therefore, it is able to send and receive items without restrictions.

Jamaica UPDATE: Jamaica Post has advised that although operational activities have been partially restored, normal delivery standards, especially for EMS deliveries, cannot be fully met. Jamaica Post will provide notification when the situation has returned to normal.

Tunisia UPDATE: La Poste Tunisienne is accepting inbound mail originating from all countries and is delivering it in accordance with the measures put into place by the Tunisian government to limit the spread of COVID-19. While every effort is being made to resume domestic and international postal services, La Poste Tunisienne continues to be unable to guarantee delivery deadlines and quality standards for all types of products, in accordance with the force majeure declared on March 17, 2020. This will continue to be the case until services and regular flight plans to all destinations have resumed as normal.

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

These service updates affect 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
