Cuba Postal Service: All you need to know

Jan 15 , 2024

Correos de Cuba, a state-owned entity, holds responsibility for overseeing and delivering postal services in Cuba. However, it’s worth noting that in recent years, various forms of management have been introduced into this sector.

In the past, the institution has been a safe place for the package shipment and information both inside and outside Cuba, and although its efficiency currently lags behind international standards in terms of speed of delivery, it is an economical and reliable option to which thousands of users turn every year.

Dating back to colonial times, the Cuban postal service has a long history. Following Cuba’s independence, the management and provision of postal services became more formalised, leading to the creation of Correos de Cuba as the entity responsible for managing postal services in the country.


How does the Cuban Postal Service operate?


Correos de Cuba provides worldwide postal services, including the sending and receiving of national and international mail and parcels, the exchange of telegrams, money orders and other financial services that have been added in recent years to broaden the company’s scope.

As part of the process of bankisation , post offices in Cuba have recently started to offer an additional cash service This allows you to get cash from these companies in exchange for money in bank accounts or cards.


How to Transfer Money Orders


Money transfers are one of Correos de Cuba’s least popular services. This difficulty is due to the fact that the official exchange rate is lower than the informal rate, so people use the services of private individuals who use the informal rate.


Where to find post offices in Cuba?


The company operates an extensive network of post offices throughout the country. This provides access to postal services for both urban and rural communities.

Correos de Cuba has signed cooperation agreements with other international postal organisations to facilitate the delivery of letters and parcels. This allows the company to operate in close contact with different regions where postal services operate with different characteristics to those established for the Cuban territory.

In recent years, Correos de Cuba has faced the challenge of modernising its operations to adapt to the changing dynamics of communication and commerce, and to improve the efficiency and quality of its services.

As demand for postal services continues to grow, companies such as Correos de Cuba need to optimise their processes and logistics in order to move towards a complete and more functional optimisation of their processes.
