It is very difficult to provide exact delivery timescales to off-island addresses as there are so many factors outside of Jersey Post's control e.g. weather, transport delays, processing in the destination country etc. However, as a rough guide we say: UK, other Channel Islands and Isle of Man - 3-5 working days. European addresses - 7-10 working days and Rest of World destinations up to 10-12 working days. Please note - these timescales are for letters and documents. Due to Customs restrictions and controls in other countries it is impossible to provide delivery estimates for goods or merchandise.

Our Customer Services call centre is open 8:30am-5:30pm weekdays (except 9am on Wednesdays) and 9am-1pm on Saturdays.

SecureDrop Signature enables Jersey Post to leave any item, including those that require a signature on delivery, in your designated SecureDrop location. We provide you with a barcode to stick in your SecureDrop location that is scanned in lieu of taking a signature. This provides us with the time and proof that your item has been delivered.
