Posting: mail must be deposited before the last clearance of the letter box (see details on letter boxes).

For letters handed over or posted after the cut-off times, the following day will be deemed to be the day of posting.

A Mail must be clearly marked with the letter “A” (sticker, handwritten remark, stamp, postmark; for customers with a billing relationship: integration in IFS overprint or PP postage paid impression).

Swiss Post assumes no liability.

No consignment tracking possible.

If you require A Mail items with Track & Trace and liability for loss, damage or incorrect delivery, please use Registred or A Mail Plus.
