UPDATE 110: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On November 27, 2020, the Postal Service™ received a notification from Post Luxembourg, the designated operator for Luxembourg, advising that the Luxembourg Government enacted new restrictions due to a second wave of COVID-19. As a result, the post is unable to maintain compliance with delivery service standards and deadlines. For all letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items requiring signature on delivery, the addressee’s signature will be replaced by the postman/woman, together with delivery code, entered in the presence of the addressee.

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
