Registered Mail is still the most secure way to send an important document or an item with an intrinsic value (i.e. a monetary value that can be reimbursed). Your item is kept under lock and key and must be signed for at every stop.
Please Note: Registered Mail is slower than regular First Class. Your cost is calculated by the value of the item being sent. You spend $4.85 for the first $100 in value. Your cost per $100 is added to regular First Class Postage. You pay an additional fee ($1.10) if you would like a return receipt. Registered Mail may be used to send items domestically and overseas.
