UPDATE 65: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On July 15, 2020, the Postal Service received notifications from various postal operators regarding changes in international mail services due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Djibouti UPDATE: Djibouti S.A. has advised that postal services will return to normal effective July 17, 2020.

Honduras UPDATE: Empresa de Correos de Honduras (Honducor) has advised that the suspension of postal services has been extended until July 19, 2020, or a later date to be communicated in due course.

Malta UPDATE: MaltaPost has advised that the collection of signature on delivery resumed as of July 1, 2020 for all items requiring signature. Confirmation of deliveries will be provided via the usual tracking event scans for products that allow tracking. Due to the cancellation of international flights, MaltaPost is still unable to guarantee quality of service and delivery standards for letter-post, parcel-post and Express Mail Service (EMS) items. Force majeure remains until further notice.

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.
