UPDATE 133: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On February 12, 2021, the Postal Service™ received a notification from Hellenic Post (ELTA), the designated operator of Greece, advising that, as of February 11, 2021, the Government implemented even stricter lockdown measures in the Attica region. It is very likely that the same will apply to other regions during the coming days. As a result, there will be a direct impact on all postal operations until further notice.

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.

The DMM Advisory will continue to provide updates as they are received. For a full list of international service disruptions, please visit
