Overseas Registration Rates (1947)-1993

Introduction


1958: 2s 6d double rate Zone B airmail + 1s registration from circus on tour
This service was (generally) available with airmail as well as surface mail, under the same conditions and at the same rates. For the details of how it worked and the full rates table see under surface mail, but the rates covering the period from 1947 are repeated below for convenience.

As with the inland services, the overseas registration and insurance services were rebranded in 1993, and further developments come under Priority Services.
