Urgent Letter

Next-day delivery for those letters that can't wait.



Additional services

Classification of deliveries by area and postcode

For customers with contract.

Request this service to enable Correos to organise your deliveries by area and postcodes. This is an essential requirement for presenting correspondence in the bulk admission units. 

Request to return or modify the postal address

You can request the return, or modify or correct the postal address, of the item.


For recorded items, an additional delivery certification service is available, giving you legally valid proof of delivery to present to third parties. 

Request for reshipment from the sender

You can additionally request the reshipment of your items. The rate is charged per item sent, not per consignment, and if it takes the form of a telegram, you will have to pay the cost of the corresponding telegraph service.

Standardisation of postal addresses

For customers with contracts.

We optimise the quality of your addresses.


Collect at home

For customers with contracts.

We collect your parcels from your address or warehouse. Availability depends on the volume of the delivery and the collection point.


Choose the perfect packaging. We have a range of products available in our Online Shop and in all our Post Offices.
Prepare your shipment. Write your details and those of the recipient somewhere visible and add the “URGENTE” label in the upper-left corner on the front.
Come and see us. Visit a Correos Post Office and ask us to send a Carta Urgente. We will ensure it arrives at its destination. 

Product information


We are experts on delivery periods and we know that some deliveries cannot be delayed. Choose Carta Urgente if it cannot wait.

  • Maximum speed: deliveries in 24 hours, with the origin and destination in large towns or cities.
  • For your peace of mind: each shipment is identified with a barcode to provide information on delivery.
  • Close to you: this option is only available for shipments within Spain. It you need to send something urgent internationally, we have Paq Light or Paq Premium Internacional .

Shipment details

You choose your perfect packaging. Of course, the size must fit these measurements:


  • Any packaging: 23.5 x 12 cm with a maximum thickness of 10 mm.


  • Envelope or box: 14 x 9 cm.
  • Roll or tube: Length + twice the diameter = 17 cm, with no measurement being less than 10 cm.

If you want to send something smaller, don't worry, you just have to add a 10 x 7 cm label with the address and postage.

And it should weigh no more than 500 g! 

Now all you have to do is tell us where you want us to deliver it

  • It is important that your details and those of the recipient are clearly visible on the packaging.
  • When you bring your letter to our Post Office, we will place the label with the barcode and the words "CARTA URGENTE".
  • Letters with commercial content addressed to Andorra, the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla must include a completed DA 1 form.
