World Post Day


World Post Day: Invitation to visit the Royal Gibraltar Post Office’s New Mail Centre

World Post Day is celebrated each year on 9 October. The event was created by the 1969 Universal Postal Congress in Tokyo, as a means to mark the anniversary of the Universal Postal Union’s creation in 1874.

The purpose of World Post Day is to bring awareness of the role played by postal services in the everyday lives of people and businesses, as well as its contribution to global social and economic development.

The UPU’s member countries are encouraged to organise their own national activities to celebrate the event, including anything from the introduction or promotion of new postal products and services to the organisation of open days at post offices, mail centres and postal museums.
