International mail delivery to Iraq and Kuwait has been suspended because of difficulties in reaching the two countries, the U.S. Postal Service said Wednesday.
All international mail addressed to those two countries will be returned to the sender endorsed “Service Temporarily Suspended,” said the agency, adding that customers can file for applications for a refund of postage on returned mail.
The suspension, effective immediately, will continue until it becomes possible to deliver mail to those two countries, the agency said.
Mail service to military personnel deployed to Saudi Arabia and to other areas of the Middle East will continue as normal, the post office said.
