St. Kitts & Nevis Post
Little is known concerning the early Postal Affairs of St. Christopher & Nevis but it is recorded that the British General Post Office was to establish a branch office on the Island of Nevis under an Act of Parliament passed in 1710, although arrangements may not have been finalized for a number of years afterwards. Nevis appears as a 'New Office' in the Post Office Account of 1787. The first recorded postal markings for St Christopher dates from 1746, although it is probable that a branch of British General Post Office operated on the island before that date. Control of Postal Services was passed to local authorities around 1858. Today the Post Office functions as a Government Department under the Ministry of Youth Empowerment, Sports, Information Technology, Telecommunications and Post. The postal network in St Christopher and Nevis comprises of six (6) postal outlets located in different parts of the country with a workforce of 92 employees.
