Phone calls to St Helena are expensive and, due to satellite lag, can be quite difficult - you speak then there’s a couple of seconds pause before you get a reply. So unless your call is really urgent{3}, it’s better to use email.

Does anyone use post anymore? Whatever you send will take ages to reach us and unless what you ask is really fascinating we probably won’t be able to afford the cost of replying. You would be better to use a more 21st Century means of communicating, like email. Unless you’re sending us a lawsuit, of course; but franky, why bother? Your legal system almost certainly has no jurisdiction here, so maybe best to raise whatever your problem is with us by email and we can take it from there…

Footnotes:

{1} We wanted ‘@SaintHelenaIslandInfo’ but that was too many letters for Twitter™!

{2} But tell that to Yahoo!, who won’t let you create an account without giving them a phone number and then reject St Helena 5-digit phone numbers because the number seems wrong.

{3} And remember, this is St Helena. What on earth could be that urgent?

{4} Or St Helena Island, or St. Helena, it doesn’t seem to matter which.

{5} Yes, St Helena telephone numbers really have only five digits{2}!
