How does it work?

Follow these steps to send your Insured Mail: 

  1. Make sure your item meets the size and weight requirements:
    Max. size: 38 x 26.5 x 3.2 cm
    Min. size: 14 x 9 cm
    Max. weight: 2 kg 
  2. Make sure that your item is addressed correctly
    To ensure speedy delivery, the receiver’s address should be clearly written on the envelope. Be sure to write a return address on the back of the envelope. This way we can return any undeliverable items to you.
    Please refer to address specifications per country
  3. Add postage
    Frank your item using our special Service stamps. These are available at your local post office. Please note that you cannot use regular stamps to frank your item. 
  4. Be sure to provide the required documentation
    For international deliveries outside the EU, you are required to fill out a customs form. Use a CN 22 form if the total value of your shipment is less than 425 euros. Otherwise a CN 23 form should be used.
  5. Post your item at one of the 2,600 post offices
