For Economy Air, many destinations require cards and gifts to be sent as early as 14 November 2022 but for International Standard and Express there is more time.
If posting with International Express, some popular destinations like the USA, the UK, New Zealand and Canada should be sent by 9 December 2022.
However, when posting to the UK, Australians keep in mind the strike actions that may delay deliveries within the UK as Royal Mail postal workers and the organization continue to be far apart on a new labor contract.
Australia Post Executive General Manager, Customer and Commercial Gary Starr said Australia Post had worked closely with international carriers to provide as much notice as possible so Australians give their cards and gifts the best chance of reaching loved ones in time for the big day.
“We know our last sending dates provide an important guide for people in the lead-up to Christmas and we’ve been preparing all year for another busy peak season to ensure things run as smoothly as possible,” Gary Starr said.
“For anyone who wants to send internationally for Christmas this year, we’re encouraging them to visit our website and post by the dates advised.”
“As always, we’ll continue to deliver items sent after these dates as quickly as possible but they may not arrive until after Christmas.”
International sending dates vary depending on destination and may be affected by factors beyond Australia Post’s control including customs delays and overseas postal disruptions.”
