PRIORITY consignments must be clearly labelled – with a legible remark (PRIORITY or PRIORITAIRE), or using the blue PRIORITY sticker available from all branches.

If the letters contain goods, please note that there are special customs requirements, including labelling the consignment (information on customs clearance and declaration).

Swiss Post assumes no liability.
