Australians have just days to send presents if they want them to arrive in time for Christmas.

We’ve put together a rundown of the dates you need to make to have your mail delivered in time.

When does international mail need to be sent to make it for Christmas?

Express post is the only option left if you want parcels to New Zealand, USA, UK and most of Europe to arrive in time for December 25.

If you want it to arrive in time, then head to the post office today.

Today is the last day mail will get to New Zealand, USA, UK and Europe by Christmas.

It is too late to send parcels to most of Asia if they are wanted in time for Christmas.

Australia Posts has said parcels sent after these dates will still be delivered “as quickly as possible”.

When does domestic mail need to be sent to make it for Christmas?

Standard parcel post deadlines have already passed in Western Australia and the Northern Territory but customers have until Wednesday, December 14 to send via express post.

For parcels being sent around the rest of Australia, there are just a few days to get them in the regular post, with the deadline being Monday, December 12.

Parcels can be sent by express post as late as Monday, December 19.

Cards and letters being sent by regular post can also be sent as late as Monday, December 19.

But they must be sent by Thursday, December 15 if they are to go interstate.
