All Mail Service to Egypt Temporarily Suspended

From the USPS DMM Advisory:

As the situation in Egypt continues to evolve, our acceptance policy for mail destined to that country also is evolving. Effective immediately, all Post Officeâ„¢ and other mail acceptance locations cannot accept any mail addressed to recipients in Egypt.

This temporary suspension affects Global Express Guaranteed® (GXG®), Express Mail International®, Priority Mail International®, First-Class Mail International®, International Priority Airmail™ (IPA®), International Surface Air Lift® (ISAL®), and M-Bag items.

Mail addressed to Egypt that has already been accepted by the Postal Service will be returned to sender. Upon request, the Postal Service will refund postage and fees on items returned due to the temporary suspension of service
