USPS: Full Service Resumes for International Mail to Europe

WASHINGTON — With the reopening of international airports across Europe, full service for international mail has resumed, and the temporary restriction imposed by the U.S. Postal Service since April 21 on the acceptance of perishable items for delivery to the continent has been lifted.

Effective immediately, the service guarantees for Express Mail International (EMI) and Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) to all destinations have resumed.

“We appreciate the patience of our customers while the airport closings were in effect,” said Pranab Shah, managing director and vice president, Global Business. “It was an unprecedented situation, and despite the challenges, we were able to establish alternate transportation channels to keep mail moving both inbound and outbound to many areas of the continent.”

Customers can monitor the status of their shipments on or contact Customer Service at 1-800-222-1811. Additional information and updates are posted online at: International Service Updates .
