  • To the Caribbean, UK and Western Europe – Tuesday 12 December 2017;

Air mail, which is the standard posting method for letters and lightweight items, is also available to most destinations for posting in time for Christmas, as follows:

  • To Canada and USA, the Caribbean, the UK and Western Europe – Thursday, 7 December 2017.

Air parcel service, the standard trackable method of posting items weighing 2 lbs. or more continues to be available but no longer in time for this Christmas.
