UPDATE 240: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On June 7, 2022, the Postal Service received notifications from various postal operators regarding changes in international mail services due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Denmark UPDATE: Post Danmark (PostNord Denmark) has advised that it has resumed signature on delivery for inbound items and has returned to normal operations.

New Caledonia UPDATE: OPT-NC has advised that the previously declared force majeure for international letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items has ended.

Pakistan UPDATE: Pakistan Post has advised that all government-imposed restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic have been lifted and all postal activities have returned to normal.

Togo UPDATE: The Togo Postal Corporation has advised that the measures implemented to limit the spread of COVID-19 have not yet been lifted but have been relaxed sufficiently that they no longer pose a major constraint to postal operations. As a result, the collection, processing, and delivery of inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) have largely resumed as normal.

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
