Hongkong Post holiday arrangements for Christmas


Hongkong Post announced today (December 1) that the latest posting date for Christmas mail for local delivery before Christmas Day is December 21 (Monday). Mail posted after this date might run the risk of not being delivered in time because of the anticipated seasonal work pressure. Members of the public are advised to post mail as early as possible in order to avoid a last-minute rush.

During the Christmas holidays (December 25 and 26), no mail delivery and no mail collection will be provided. All post offices will be closed. In accordance with the usual practice, mail posted on the public holidays will be processed on the next working day.

To ensure that greetings sent by air mail are delivered before Christmas, members of the public are reminded to post their mail on or before the latest dates of posting. A complete list of the latest dates of posting for this year's Christmas mail by air is displayed at all post offices. Customers may also find the information on Hongkong Post's website at www.hongkongpost.hk or contact the Hongkong Post enquiry hotline at 2921 2222.
