My girlfriend and I are currently travelling around the world so not spending too much time in any one place. Unfortunately, she needs to sign some forms for her university registration before we get back. Does anyone know of the best way that her parents can send her the forms. I'm only asking as we won't know where we will be staying till we get there and even then we won't be that long. Could they send them to the post office of our next destination so we could pick them up when we get there.

Roughly how long does it take to send mail from UK to Australia/New Zealand

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

is it possible for the documents to be scanned in and then printed where you are? if you explain to the university maybe they would accept signed copies...

Hi Andy,

Once you found a place where you can have the documents sent to, ask her family members at home to send it there via courier service, i.e. FedEx, DHL, UPS, EMS (by post offices). Depending on the service you choose and the drop-off time, sending a document should not take longer than two to three days as it doesn't require customs clearance. Most courier companies also have next-day delivery service, just pay more! ;)
