UPDATE 141: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

 

On March 3, 2021, 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:

 

Czech Republic UPDATE: Česká Pošta s.p. has advised that, in response to a significant rise in the number of COVID-19 infections, the Czech Government has extended the state of emergency until at least March 21, 2021. The processing and delivery of all types of inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) will continue to be affected, and Česká pošta is unable to guarantee compliance with the agreed standards. As a result, force majeure is extended until further notice, and previously announced restrictions continue to apply.

 

Indonesia UPDATE: Pos Indonesia has advised that the previously announced force majeure remains in effect due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the state of alert declared by the Indonesian government.

 

Unless otherwise noted, service updates to a particular country do not affect the 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

 

As always, if you have any questions about this or any other announcement, please reach out to Customer Service via the Zendesk ticket system.
