Peru

7-2-20

Peru’s post advises that it will be resuming limited operations effective July 1, 2020. Outbound mail (letter post, parcel post and EMS) will be resumed gradually depending on flight availability and cargo capacity.

Although Peru’s post has been authorized to resume its operations, the government has extended the national state of emergency until July 31, 2020, until which time the borders of Peru will remain closed and all international transport by road, air, sea and river will be suspended, with the exception of transport for humanitarian purposes. As such, all postal items will continue to be delivered in line with the guidelines set out by the Peruvian health authorities, but only in the capital, the Lima metropolitan, as transport to the rest of the country is no longer available.

This could cause delivery delays for both inbound and outbound mail, and therefore, the situation of force majeure remains until further notice. Letter post, parcel post and registered EMS will be delivered, and with appropriate social distancing measures where a signature is necessary.

Temporary Service Suspension The U.S. Postal Service received notice that various postal operators are no longer able to process or deliver international mail or services originating from the United States due to service disruptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a result, the Postal Service is currently unable to accept items destined for Peru at any Post Office or postal facility location, effective April 3 until further notice. Customers are asked to refrain from entering items addressed to Peru into the USPS system effective immediately.

These service disruptions affect Priority Mail Express International® (PMEI), Priority Mail International® (PMI), First-Class Mail International® (FCMI), First-Class Package International Service® (FCPIS®), International Priority Airmail® (IPA®), International Surface Air Lift® (ISAL®), and M-Bag® items.

For any returned item bearing a customs form, the Postal Service will, upon request, refund postage and fees on mail returned due to the suspension of service. For all other returned items not bearing a customs declarations form, the Postal Service will, upon request, refund postage and fees on mail returned due to the suspension of service, or the sender may remail them with the existing postage once service has been restored. When remailing under this option, customers must cross out the markings “Mail Service Suspended — Return to Sender.”

Unless otherwise noted, service suspensions to a particular country do not affect delivery of military and diplomatic mail.
