More About Registered Article
Registered Article does not provide detailed online tracking capability. It is not mandatory for registered items to be scanned at every stage of the delivery process be it for local or overseas delivery.
For registered articles to overseas, the scan events may differ from post to post. A scan event will be shown if and when they are provided by the overseas postal administrations. For countries with no online tracking updates, SingPost will check with the overseas postal administrations on the status if the addressee did not receive the item after a stipulated time. Under the international postal agreement, overseas postal administrations may take up to 60 days to reply.
For any loss of the Registered Article, the maximum liability of SingPost is limited to Singapore Dollars Sixty-Eight (S$68.00) per article or the declared value of the item, whichever is lower.
SingPost shall not be liable under any circumstances for paper-related items such as documents.

Advice of Receipt (AR)
If you have opted for AR service, we will get the recipient to sign on the AR card and this card will be returned to you via ordinary post. This service is at S$1.00 on top of the registered fee plus postage.
Mail sent via such mode will be treated with priority upon arriving at the destination. This service is available at S$2.00 on top of the registered fee plus postage (available to certain destinations only).
Insurance (per Section E, Conv Art PL 138, Universal Postal Union Letter Post Manual)
For extra coverage and higher amounts of compensation in the event of loss, insurance is available to most countries. Insurance coverage is chargeable at S$1.00 per S$100.00 value (minimum insurance premium is S$5.00), i.e. If you want to insure your mail for S$1,000.00, you pay S$10.00. For maximum insurance limits and destinations that accept insurance, please call our Postal Enquiry Hotline 1605 (toll-free within Singapore) or you may seek the assistance of our Customer Service Officers at any post office.
