Express Guaranteed Service to Egypt Temporarily Suspended
On February 3, 2011, the Postal Service™ suspended
Global Express Guaranteed® (GXG®) service to
Egypt due to FedEx®
operational requirements for items sent into and out of Egypt.
Until further notice, all Post Office™ locations will not accept GXG items
destined to the country of Egypt.
For already deposited GXG items addressed to Egypt, Postal Service employees will
endorse them “Mail Service Temporarily Suspended — Return to Sender” and
then place them in the mailstream for return. Upon request, the Postal
Service will refund postage and fees on mail returned due to the suspension
We will use the DMM Advisory to keep you informed of
any further developments affecting mail delivery to and from Egypt.
