UPDATE 214: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On January 7, 2022, La Poste, the designated operator of France, provided notification that, as of January 3, 2022, it is operating in strict compliance with all government-imposed measures which may have an impact on operations. As a result, La Poste is unable to guarantee normal operations or compliance with standards and delivery times for letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items.

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