Sending/Receiving Mail

Sending Mail to the United States, United Kingdom, and Grenada
First-class mail between the United States, United Kingdom, and Grenada may take up to two weeks in either direction. Mail sent to Grenada should be marked “Air Mail.”

  • Mail can be placed in the slot at the True Blue mailroom or at any Post Office.
  • The regular mail service accepts only Grenadian postage stamps.
  • The charge is EC $1 for a postcard and EC $1 per half-ounce for a standard letter to the United States, United Kingdom, or Canada.
  • Please inquire at the Post Office for other nations.

Receiving Mail in Grenada
All mail and packages take five to fourteen days to reach destinations in the United States, United Kingdom, or Canada. Make sure that the destination country is part of the address for all mail sent out of Grenada and be sure to label it “Air Mail.” (For example, if the mail is going to the United States, put “USA” as part of the address.)

FedEx®

FedEx® also services Grenada. FedEx® items can be sent from the True Blue campus or from their office on Lagoon Road in St. George’s. Be aware that FedEx® cannot deliver items in one day in most cases. The cost of delivery is high, and there is a two-day commitment for items coming into Grenada and next day service for shipments to North America.

Facsimile

Fax services are available on the first floor of the West Wing of Founders Library.

  • Faxes can be sent for EC $2 per page to the United States.
  • Copies cost EC $0.25 per page.

Shipping Bulk Packages

When traveling down to campus, we do not recommended sending bulk packages as an alternative to bringing items with you on the plane. Shipping to/from Grenada is expensive and slow. Additionally, all packages mailed to Grenada are subject to search by customs, and applicable duties are charged (for example, 55% on food). We recommend that you bring anything you will want for the term down with you on your flight. If shipping is necessary, you may wish to consider airline shipping services. Please see our Travel Information/Shipping for more information on airline shipping.
