International post needs to be sent a lot earlier than European post, for obvious reasons and it’s that reason that the international posting dates need to be known as soon as possible.
Airmail is always the quickest way to send items through the post, especially at Christmas and we’ll be publishing all of the international posting dates for Christmas 2009.
International Airmail Posting Dates – Christmas 2009
Friday 4th December: South & Central America, Caribbean, Africa, Middle East, Far East, Asia, New Zealand and Australia
Thursday 10th December: Japan, USA, Canada and Eastern Europe
Friday 11th December: Western Europe
Australia is always one of the popular destinations for Christmas cards, as are the USA and Canada.Â Â Last posting dates for airmail to Australia is Friday 4th of December, with the last posting for the USA and Canada just under a week later on Thursday 10th of December.
Surface mail is a low cost option to send mail, cards and parcels overseas, although can take up to 12 weeks.Â Posting dates for Christmas have only recently been known and already a number of destinations have missed their deadlines, such as the Middle East.
