Hong Kong (Hongkong) Mailing Address Formats and Other International Mailing Information

for mailing letters or packages to or from Hong Kong,
such as postal rates to (or from) Hong Kong, finding Hong Kong addresses, Hong Kong postcodes, etc.

Also see People's Republic of China.

When mailing an envelope or postcard, leave at least the bottom 16 millimeters (5/8 inch) blank on both front and back. (The postal service's reading and sorting machines might need this space to print bar codes on your mail.)

Cultural notes
 
  • When addressing mail to Chinese, use blue or black ink--never red! Writing a name in red is considered inauspicious.
  • A red envelope suggests a special gift of money, so a different color of envelope might be better for most purposes.

Postcode Search (find Hong Kong postcodes / postal codes = 'Hong Kong zip codes')

Hong Kong has no postcodes (no postal codes) at this time! The special territory still lets humans be humans and robots be robots.
