Christmas postal deadlines

The Cayman Islands Postal Service has recommended Thursday, 8 November, as the latest date to send Christmas surface mail to the United Kingdom, Western Europe and all other countries.

Postal customers will have a bit more time to send their packages to Canada and the USA, as that deadline is Monday, 19 November.

These dates are the latest recommended date – if you can post your packages before that date, earlier is better.

International mail transit time can vary greatly from one country to the next, and the dates the CIPS has provided are based upon information received but should not be regarded as a guarantee for on-time delivery.

To prevent delays, remember to use a current address, attach the correct postage and include a customs form with the value of the package. Want more information?
