UPDATE 223: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19
On February 16, 2022, the Postal Service received notifications from various postal operators regarding changes in international mail services due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The following countries have provided updates to certain mail services:
Barbados UPDATE: Barbados Postal Service has advised that the curfew has been lifted as of February 14, 2022 and postal services have therefore returned to normal.
Jamaica UPDATE: Jamaica Post has advised that the Government of Jamaica has extended the national curfew until February 25, 2022. Revised working shifts/hours will continue to apply across the entire postal network, affecting sorting operations and mail delivery. Consequently, the force majeure previously announced continues to apply, with an impact on quality of service for all types of mail, including inbound and outbound 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.
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.
The DMM Advisory will continue to provide updates as they are received. For a full list of international service disruptions, please visit https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/welcome.htm
