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


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