Vanuatu has unveiled what it claims to be the world’s first underwater post office providing jobs for four dive-accredited postal workers operating in shifts.

You buy special waterproof postcards available from shops on terra firm, then you scuba dive three metres down to have your postcards embossed with a waterproof stamp, specially created by Vanuatu Post to celebrate the 83-island archipelago’s status as a marine paradise.

Vanuatu Tourism described the fibreglass post office as being surrounded by beds of coral and shoals of multicoloured fish in a marine sanctuary off Hideaway Island on the oustkirts of Port Vila. It is all aimed at drawing attention to the diversity of Vanuatu’s underwater world, and easily accessible dive sites.
