Updated August 24, 2022: The USPS continues to update its service alerts as the COVID situation continues worldwide.
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.
