Worldmail and International Express items are collected by the contracted provider by 3.00pm daily Monday to Friday.
Worldmail is to be separated from domestic mail and "airmail" should be written or stamped on the envelope.
This service is ideal for items that need to be overseas in four to five days. There are two types of International Express services provided:
- International Express Documents
- International World Parcel Express
To ensure items are processed correctly, it is advisable to include the following information:
- Clear address

Consignment notes are supplied by the mail room; however, they need to be filled out by the sender. Documents and parcels must be clearly marked "International Express courier" or they will be posted as international Worldmail.
