Post Office

Published:

Due to the logistics of Jamaica, many addresses do not include a door number, street or road name, merely a district and parish. This makes it virtually impossible for post workers to circumnavigate the island delivering post to every individual residential address and place of business in Jamaica on a daily basis.

Post Office Services
Jamaica’s Main Post Offices are open between 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and offer a full range of postal services. Whereas the Postal Agencies only run on a part-time basis, offering a restricted range of postal services. The full range of services available include:

  • Sale of judicial and National Insurance Stamps (NIS)
  • Acceptance and delivery of letters and parcels
  • Sale of philatelic products
