Vilnius - Post Report Question and Answers

How do you send and receive your letters and package mail? Are local postal facilities adequate?

DPO through the embassy. - Feb 2021

Through DPO mail and pouch. - Sep 2020

DPO, fast. - Oct 2019

DPO. I haven't used the local postal service but it should be fine. - Mar 2017

Local post is reliable for those without DPO privileges. If you've used diplomatic pouch but not DPO before, keep in mind that Amazon doesn't ship pantry boxes to the DPO addresses, so ordering groceries from Amazon doesn't work well. - Mar 2017

DPO. - Aug 2015

DPO, usually 2-3 weeks. You can also use the local mail system. Outbound seems to work ok, but receiving from the USA tends to involve disappointment and missing mail. - Jun 2013

DPO or pouch. - Feb 2011

APO and pouch. - May 2009

APO mail comes from the Helsinki APO, but it is soon to be a DPO. Unsure at this time if Vilnius will get their own DPO. Pouch is also available. - Nov 2008
