USPS Global Express Guaranteed Service to Egypt Suspended

Other International Mail from the U.S. Bound for Egypt Held Temporarily

On Feb. 3, the U.S. Postal Service temporarily suspended acceptance of Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) service to Egypt due to the lack of GXG transportation service to Egypt.
