In response to the latest development of COVID-19, it is decided that, starting ‪from 28 March 2020‬ until further notice, postmen will not require the person who receives a mail item at the delivery address to sign for acknowledgement of receipt in order to reduce social contacts, but record of delivery will still be marked.

For unsuccessful door delivery, postmen will issue notification card for mail collection according to the established procedures. The addressee can collect the item from designated post office. The procedures for mail collection at post office remain unchanged.

If the mail item is to be collected at post office, the person who collects has to produce the Notification Card for mail collection and his/her valid identification document* before signing for the receipt. The name of the collector will then be recorded.

* Hongkong Post accepts the following types of identification document:

  1. Hong Kong Identity Card; or
  2. valid travel document or
