I had an envelope that I'd sent from the UK to an address in Suva returned to me by the recipient.
It had the following rubber stamp applied to the reverse. The impression is 85mm long x 17mm high (approx).
I had used Sellotape to seal the envelope.
It is odd, I was looking though some papers last night and that cover nearly went into the recycling! The cover was sent by ordinary airmail. I agree that it would make sense if they used that cachet for incoming registered covers.
It is interesting, given that all Fiji addresses seem to be P O Box numbers, that Royal Mail "International Signed For" is not available to PO boxes. See: http://www.royalmail.com/delivery/delivery-options-international/international-signed/details
So, it is no longer possible to send what used to be termed "Registered" mail to Fiji from the UK anymore.
I wonder if this breaches some UPU regulation?
Last time I heard there was a FJD $3 charge levied on incoming parcels and small packets, I don't know if this applies to registered mail though.
