Poste Italiane Suspends Mail Service to Areas Affected by Coronavirus

February 26th, 2020

Effective February 24, 2020, Poste Italiane has temporarily suspended mail service to areas affected by the recent coronavirus outbreak. For USPS deliveries destined to Italy, the USPS handles packages up to Italian customs, after which the package is handed over to Poste Italiane to handle delivery to the recipient. As such, the suspension will affect USPS mailpieces sent via Priority Mail Express International, Priority Mail International, First-Class Mail International, First-Class Package International Service, International Priority Airmail, International Surface Air Lift, and M-Bag.

The USPS will continue to accept mail destined to affected areas; however, this mail will be held by Poste Italiane until normal delivery is restored. Locations with temporarily suspended mail services include:
