Sri Lanka Registered post question

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I am expecting some registered local post in next month. Due to work and other commitments no one will be available during this time at home.

1.what happens to registered post if not possible to deliver, sent back to sender or discarded?

 

2. Is there some kind of auto forwarding service like we have in other countries?

3.not possible to assign a neighbour to sign and collect it?

1.Sent back or discarded : They try 3 times to deliver. If those all attempts failed, send back to sender (Think its only for registered post letters). Between the deliver attempts, letter remains in the post office. So you may visit and collect it.

2. Auto forwarding : Never heard such thing from our SL post :(

3.Assign a neighbor : Could be possible. First meet your postman and update him . Then write to the post master of your post office.

If it's a registered package or letter, they attempt to deliver 3 times. On the 4th day, the postman will leave a slip in your post box. You need to go to the post office and collect the package.

This is actually better than Australia, where they attempt delivery only once.

Assigning your neighbour to collect is fine as long as the postman agrees. Otherwise, you need to give an authorization letter to the post master at the nearest post office.
