As of January 14, 2022:
The USPS has suspended all international services from the United States to Hong Kong due to recent outbreaks of COVID-19.
The USPS has resumed some services from the United States to New Zealand.
To avoid a disruption in service to affected countries, we recommend shipping packages via UPS or GlobalPost.
Unless otherwise noted, service suspensions to a particular country do not affect delivery of military and diplomatic mail.
First-Class Mail International is one of USPS's premium services. It is well suited to lightweight documents.
This is an international service. International mail originates in the United States and is transported to another country. This excludes U.S. territories and military posts destinations (which are considered domestic).
First-Class Mail International rates vary based on weight and destination (Country Price Group), as well as rate class.
This service uses parcel weight to determine postage costs. Costs increase as weight increases.
USPS uses Country Price Groups to calculate shipping rates for international shipments. The shipment destination determines the Country Price Group. Learn more about Country Price Groups.
Retail pricing is offered directly from the USPS at Post Office retail locations or USPS.com. It does not include discounts on postage prices like those received via ShippingEasy. Learn more about USPS Retail pricing.
