Post

Letters and postcards sent with Israel Post (www.israelpost.co.il) to North America and Australasia take seven to 10 days to arrive; to Europe it’s a bit less. Incoming mail takes three or four days from Europe and around a week from other places; packages are much slower.

For express service, options include DHL (www.dhl.co.il) and UPS (www.ups.com); Israel Post’s EMS (Express Mail Service) is cheaper but slower and not as reliable.
