Compensation and Liability

Vanuatu Post does not offer an Insurance service. Extra caution should be taken when sending valuable items in the mail for possible damage or pilferage if the mail is going to the few less secure destination countries.

Our compensation policy generally falls under the Universal Postal Union (UPU) compensation and liability policy. Vanuatu Post does not offer insurance service to cover valuable items sent via mail. There is a slight difference on the compensation ceiling for the different mail delivery service - Express Mail Service, Registered or Parcel related items.

Receiving Mail

International incoming mail to Vanuatu can be delivered to over 60 locations in the Vanuatu Post network. All inbound mail are opened and sorted in Port Vila. Customs Clearance and Quarantine processes are also done in Port Vila and Santo on site which allows more convenience for customers.

Mail to Vanuatu locations can take from 2 to 10 days and it depends on the number of flights to each locations. Those locations with regular flight should receive mail within a week period according to our announced Delivery Standard.

All mail are delivered into boxes or through the agents in areas where there is no boxes installed. Packets and parcels may require customs clearance and when this is the case customers need to contact the Post Office to confirm arrival of the mail and then Customs for clearance fees which normally applies.
