The day of delivery may vary due to general and regional public holidays.

In order to guarantee delivery on the next working day, A Mail letters must be handed in at the post office counter by the usual close of business – but by no later than 6.30 p.m. (in the case of branches with longer opening hours). 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.

A balancing man against a green background is the logo for the carbon-neutral “pro clima” – Shipment option.

Swiss Post sends all addressed domestic letters carbon-neutrally and covers the “pro clima” surcharges for offsetting CO2 emissions. Thanks to Swiss Post’s climate protection measures, the letter is both an effective and a carbon-neutral means of communication. We will also transport your other postal items carbon-neutrally in return for a small surcharge.
