Is anyone going to UK soon who would be willing to post letters for me.? It is Government mail. Alternatively, a reliable service offered by Egyptian Post.

DHL or the Express Mail where you put it in a Plastic Bag and seal it at the post office. Personally when dealing with Government offices I used DHL, I asked a friend to post back in the UK about my Pension and it opened up a Wasp's Nest with the Pensions dept. wanting to know if I had moved back to the UK, wanting my contact details and all sorts. I just had to tell them I had been back for a short holiday and posted it while there.

Sdo I get a letter every year from my pensions company asking if I am still alive and kicking, I have to send the completed form back to the UK, I usually go to the post office and ask for it to be registered, they give you a receipt and a number so that you can track the mail, never had any problems with it yet. Having said that !!!!
