Delivery on the next working day after posting – including Saturdays.
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.

We will also transport your other postal items carbon-neutrally in return for a small surcharge.
