Members of the public are reminded that the Post Office Delivery Regulations (2019) takes effect from June 1.

However, given the challenges that some consumers may have in acquiring a mailbox by this date, and given the country’s present situation as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the public will be given an extension to acquire a mailbox until September 1.

Postmen will therefore continue to deliver mail to all customers as is customary. Homeowners and businesses are asked to note that a receptacle for a mail delivery point is a mailbox, a letter slot, and a cluster box unit.

Mailboxes should be fastened: (a) securely or adjacent to any entrance door, which is readily accessible to an officer of the post office or (b) securely to a wall or fence of the residence, which is readily accessible to an officer of the post office.

Homeowners may also be cut a letter slot in: (a) any entrance door of the residence, which is readily accessible to an officer of the post office or (b) place a panel adjacent to any entrance door of the residence, which is readily accessible to an officer of the post office.

Mailboxes are available for sale at all post offices. Persons requiring further information, should call the Customer Service Desk at 535-3956/3953, or visit the Barbados Postal Service’s Facebook page.

The Postmaster General thanks members of the public for their cooperation, and urges them to stay safe.
