UPDATE 85: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On September 14, 2020, the Postal Service™ received a notification from Jamaica Post, the designated operator of Jamaica, advising that the Government of Jamaica has extended the national curfew until September 23, 2020. Therefore, the processing and delivery of mail along with responses to online customer inquiries may be delayed. Force majeure remains with an impact on quality of service for all types of mail, including inbound and outbound letter-post, parcel-post and Express Mail Service (EMS) items.

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.
