On 18th January 2017, Uganda will join the rest of the African Postal fraternity to celebrate the 37th anniversary of the Pan African Post Day
with the theme “The post: An essential infrastructure for the development of e-commerce in Africa”.
The URA is mandated by law to open and verify the contents of each parcel received at the Post Office
in the presence of the recipient for Kampala General Post Office (GPO) parcels.
Parcels for deliveries from other offices other than GPO are verified by URA Customs Officials at GPO, secured by a URA branded tape and forwarded to the respective offices for delivery.
