Just wondering if anyone might know of some way to send tracked couriered documents to South Africa fairly cheaply. Far as I can tell NZ Post don't do International Courier to SA but they do generously do International Express Courier, which is a mere $87.

 

I don't particularly want them to go walkabout so probably need to courier, but an alternative might be to post several identical versions using International Air Registered which would be $17.40, not couriered but is signed for.

FedEx? $87 seems not too bad if they are that important.

I suppose its an extra incentive to make sure I get it right the first time and don't have to send modified versions again, and again...

You might want to check if they really do have an International Express Courier service to South Africa.

 

I heard the service was stopped due to parcels not being delivered in South Africa, in the required stated time.

On the website it says they don't do the cheap one to SA but do do the expensive one. It certainly would be nice if it was the other way round (its half the price). The easiest way to find out of course is to ask, which I shall be doing fairly soon, but thought I'd inquire here in the meantime.

andrewNZ: If it's just documents, perhaps international air registered mail

Yes, thought of that, might be worth a shot.

Maybe, but will see if I can get a cheaper way for NZ Post to send them if I can first.

Last time I sent important time critical documents to South East Asia using International Express Courier from NZPost,   it was passed onto DHL and I even got a DHL tracking number.   Very very expensive to 2 sheets of A4 sized paper.

Can't say they're particularly time sensitive. Well fairly, but not very, mostly don't want them to disappear without me knowing about it for a month or something.
