Global Express Guaranteed Service to Egypt Temporarily Suspended

On February 3, 2011, the Postal Service™ suspended Global Express Guaranteed® (GXG®) service to Egypt due to FedEx® operational requirements for items sent into and out of Egypt. Until further notice, all Post Office™ locations will not accept GXG items destined to the country of Egypt.

For already deposited GXG items addressed to Egypt, Postal Service employees will endorse them “Mail Service Temporarily Suspended — Return to Sender” and then place them in the mailstream for return. Upon request, the Postal Service will refund postage and fees on mail returned due to the suspension of service.

We will use the DMM Advisory to keep you informed of any further developments affecting mail delivery to and from Egypt.
