History
Background
Post Fiji's history lies in the first Postal Act passed by the Legislative Assembly of the Fiji Government in December 1871, which officially established the setting up of a Postal Department in Fiji, a General Post Office, Post Offices in other parts of Fiji and the appointment of a Chief Postmaster and other Postmasters who may be required to operate these Post Offices.

The Cakobau Postal Act prepared and guided those who were to play a pioneering role in the operation and development of postal services in Fiji.

Until 1989, Fiji's postal operations were a division of a government department called the Department of Posts and Telecommunications. Subsequently, the department became corporatised in 1990 and from this first year of corporatisation to 30 June 1996, Fiji Posts and Telecommunications was restructured three times.
On 30 June 1996, the inevitable separation of Post and Telecommunications was formalized. Two new entities rose in its stead - Post Fiji Ltd and Telecom Fiji Ltd.

From 1996 Onwards

Post Fiji Limited commenced as an entity from 1 July 1996. It is registered and incorporated under the Companies Act as a private company with the shareholding wholly owned by the Government of Fiji. A Board of Directors, nominated by Government, leads the company.

Post Fiji's core activities are message communication in letters, and distributing courier and parcel items. It also provides stamps, financial transactions, telegram services and just recently, data processing and mail production services called Smartmail.

Post Fiji is responsible for the collection, processing and delivery of letters, parcels and urgent documents to some 56,000 letterboxes and some 15,000 residential addresses in Fiji.

The Post and Telecommunications Decree 1989 gives Post Fiji the sole authority to convey letters from one place to another and to perform all the incidental services of accepting, receiving, collecting and delivering letters. In all other products and services, Post Fiji operates in competitive markets.
