Telegram Delivery Times

Croatian Post will normally deliver your telegram on the same day.

When sending your telegram, you will be told exactly when your telegram will be delivered.

Telegrams are not delivered on Sundays and holidays.
Croatian Post ensures that telegrams and telegraph orders are transferred and delivered within the following times:
  • In localities having organized delivery of telegrams and telegraph orders, delivery is arranged so that all telegrams and telegraph orders received up to a defined time limit are delivered on the same day. Telegrams arriving after such receipt time limit are delivered on the next business day.
  • In localities where no organized delivery of telegrams is available, telegrams and telegraph orders are delivered by postal delivery. Telegrams and telegraph orders received at the destination post office before the postman starts his route are delivered on the same day. Telegrams received after the postman starts his route are delivered on the next business day.
  • Telegrams and telegraph orders sent to localities exempted from the obligation to deliver mail on a daily basis are delivered by postal delivery at least once a week.
  • Telegrams sent to localities exempted from the obligation to deliver mail on a daily basis that arrive after the postman starts his regular delivery route are communicated to the addressee by telephone and delivered as part of the next delivery. In case the addressee is not a telephone service subscriber or prefers not to have the telegram read to him/her over the phone, it will be forwarded by phone or fax to the relevant distribution area to be delivered to the addressee on the next business day.
  • Telegraph orders sent to localities exempted from the obligation to deliver mail on a daily basis that arrive after the postman starts his regular delivery route will be delivered to the addressee as part of the next delivery according to the delivery day schedule.
Below please find a list of localities having organized delivery of telegrams and telegraph orders with defined receipt time limits, which is an integral part of our General Terms and Conditions of Providing Telegram and Postal Order Services.
 
The above times are exclusive of:
  • the time of arrival after the defined receipt time limit or after the postman starts his route;
  • the time of delay as a result of an inaccurate or incomplete address for the addressee; and
  • the time of delay as a result of force majeure or technical interference for which Croatian Post is not responsible and the time the post office is closed.

These time limits for transferring and delivering telegrams do not apply to telegrams and telegraph orders for which the sender requests the special service of having it delivered on a particular day (URUČITIx).
