Royal Mail’s International Tracking and Signature services provide different levels of tracking:

  • International Tracked & Signed: tracking within the UK and after leaving the UK, online delivery confirmation and signature on delivery*
  • International Tracked: tracking within and after leaving the UK, plus online delivery confirmation
