It is important for the addressee's address to be written in a language that can be understood by both the local and overseas postal staff. The address should be written legibly in Roman letters and Arabic numerals. The address may be written in the language of the country of destination but the city and country names must be written in ENGLISH. Include a postal code, if any.
An address written in Chinese characters is acceptable for local mail as well as the mail sending to Mainland China, Macau and Taiwan.
You may refer to the Post Office Guide for more information on the posting requirements of overseas postal administration. The Post Office Guide is available at all Post Offices and the Hongkong Post website.
