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.

For guaranteed next-day delivery to the UK use our Courier service, available online or over the counter. Alternatively, consider our Tracked & Signed service, with an expected next-day delivery. Due to customs import restrictions, we are unable to guarantee next-day delivery of goods or merchandise to the UK. Please note - adverse weather may impact on next-day services as they are reliant on mail plane arrival and departure.

VAT must be paid on most items sent from Jersey to the UK. As a personal customer, any items that you have sold via an online selling website, are subject to VAT. Any gifts you are sending that exceed a retail value of £39.00 may need to have VAT paid on them and it is advisable to do so at the time of sending, as Royal Mail add an additional £8 handling fee. If you are a business sending items that have been sold online, you will need to pay VAT on any item that you are posting to customers based in the UK. VAT relief was previously allowed for goods less than £15 but this is no longer the case. For more information visit www.gov.je.
