AS the countdown to Christmas is underway and postage of parcels to overseas destinations is peaking, the Guyana Post Office Corporation (GPOC) wishes to remind the general public that persons posting parcels are required to present to the Customs officials at GPOC, some valid form of identification such as a passport or national identification card as well as a valid proof of address.
Proof of address accepted by the Post Office include a GT&T bill; GPL bill or a bank statement not older than three months prior to the date on which the parcel is being posted.
The GPOC further wishes to advise clients that bills from the Guyana Water Inc. (GWI) will not be accepted as proof of address, since such bills do not bear the Post Office Corporation’s date stamp.
Customers are urged to pay strict attention to this advisory in order to avoid inconvenience and save time lost through having to return home to secure the required documentation.
Please also be advised that parcels will not be accepted for postage after 15:00 hrs. on the working days, Mondays through Fridays.
