Mexico Mailing Address Formats and Other International Mailing Information

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

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.)
