Registered Letter

Starting from 1 June 2023, the delivery time for economy letters will be changed as part of the measures related to the continuous decline in the volume of letters. Economy letters will be typically delivered within three working days from the day of posting instead of the current two working days. The change will help maintain the necessary efficiency of the nationwide letter delivery network.

One letter, two signed for delivery options
