I just received an email from USPS regarding Australia shipments.
Here is what they said.
The Postal Service™ will temporarily suspend international mail acceptance for certain destinations due to service impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Effective September 3, 2021, the Postal Service will suspend international mail acceptance to destinations where transportation is unavailable due to widespread cancellations and restrictions into the area.
Customers are asked to refrain from mailing the following services to Australia until further notice:
First-Class Package International Service (FCPIS)
Commercial ePacket (CeP)
International Priority Airmail (IPA) Packets
International Surface Air Lift (ISAL) Packets
Unless otherwise noted, service suspensions to a particular country do not affect delivery of military and diplomatic mail.
For already deposited items, other than Global Express Guarantee® (GXG®), Postal Service International Service Center (ISC) employees will endorse the items as “Mail Service Suspended — Return to Sender” and then place them in the mail stream for return.
Due to COVID-19, international shipping has been suspended to many countries. According to DMM 604.9.2.3, customers are entitled to a full refund of their postage costs when service to the country of destination is suspended.
My dear friend Nelson sent this to me and asked that I share it with you!

God bless you all,
