Standard post items are normally delivered by An Post one to two days after posting. Most often, delays occur due to incomplete, illegible or incorrect addresses.
Other reasons for late or delayed delivery include:
- Items posted after the final collection of the day
- Difficulty accessing the property
- International post being handled by multiple postal services and customs agents
- Handling of prohibited items
If we have left a 'sorry we missed you' notice indicating that delivery was attempted at your address, please follow the instructions on the notice.
If you have not received your standard post within five working days from the date of posting, or 15 days in the case of international post, we suggest you use our contact form or pick up an enquiry form at your local post office or delivery office.
