(Note)

  1. These shipment deadlines are the final dates set according to the delivery information received from each country/territory in order to provide enough time for the Christmas mail (cards etc) delivery to the destination countries/territories.
  2. We recommend you to ship packages (Parcel Mail, Small Package Mail)prior to the deadlines above as the customs examination at the country of destination may take additional time.
  3. Regarding SAL Mail, where the deadlines' fields are left empty, it means that it is either impossible to establish the time needed for delivery or that SAL does not provide Christmas mail delivery service for the destination.
  4. Regarding Sea Mail, where the deadlines' fields are left empty, it means that it is impossible to establish the time needed for delivery. Where it says “Finished”, the Christmas mail shipment deadline has already passed.
  5. For countries and territories not included in the table above the Christmas mail delivery schedule is unclear and we therefore do not set the mail shipment deadlines.
  6. Regarding mail shipments for the USA, there is a temporary suspension of acceptance for some postal items starting from November 18, 2010.
    We will post a notification once the suspension is lifted.
