UPDATE 105: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On November 13, 2020, the Postal Service™ received a notification from LibanPost, the designated operator of Lebanon, advising that, in order to combat the resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lebanese Government has announced a new nationwide lockdown from November 14 to 30, 2020. The lockdown will have an impact on delivery standards for letter-post, parcel-post and Express Mail Service (EMS) items. As a result, LibanPost is unable to guarantee compliance with the agreed standards.

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
