UPDATE 202: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On September 29, Royal Mail, the designated operator of the United Kingdom, provided notification that as of August 31, 2021, the United Kingdom’s postal regulator, OFCOM, has ended all special actions implemented to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, restrictions to its services no longer apply.

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.
