How to Address A Chinese Envelope
 

Keywords: Chinese address, verification, information, return address, destination, postage stamp
 

Chinese envelope format is different from the English format, but they both consist of three parts: the return address, destination and postage stamp.

A standard Chinese envelope print the six digit code frame on the upper left corner of the facade to write in the zip-code of the destination. Next to the zip-code is where the receiver's address (destination) placed, commonly on the upper or left flap of the envelope. The Chinese address writes from general to detail which is quite different from the English format. It starts the first line of the receiver's address with the country's name (if necessary), then followed in turns the province, the city and the physical street address or P.O. box number. You must make verification before you fill out the content on the envelope.

The detailed address is often arranged in a line unless if it looks too long. Writing another line is also accepted. The hand writing should be clear and legible by black or blue ink. Avoid red ink because red name is ominous in Chinese culture. The receiver's name is given in the center of the envelope usually in bold character and addressed with Chinese honorific such as 先生(Mr.) and 女士(Miss).

The sender's information is put on the right down side of the envelope, putting each element of the address in the same order as above.

Finally, attach proper postage to the upper right-hand corner of the envelope. Avoid placing tape over postage stamps.
