Prepare your visit to the Post Office!

Queuing at post office in BeijingUnless you are a very lucky person, you will not meet English speaking staff in post offices. You’d better speak a little bit of Chinese or make sure you have all the information written.

The staff will first have to copy the address on a template and then encode it in the computer: as the staff is not used to write Latin characters, you will feel it last for an eternity. Double check the information and even more carefully if you hand- wrote the information. In case you  send a letter in China, make sure you have the contact details in Chinese characters!  

You will also need to give your contact details: bring your home address in Chinese characters.

Sending a letter < 20 g will cost you less than 10 RMB (international aviation mailing). You can find all the rates from the China Post Website, section Rates. 

If you are shipping goods, the staff will have to check what you are sending and if they are not sure, they will refuse you the shipment. Don’t close the packaging otherwise, you will have to reopen it. You can purchase boxes from the post office and you will find crumpled newspaper.

 

 Buying stamps 马甸 in Beijing

Most of letters will be sent with a printed stamp, but if you are into philately or if you prefer a real stamp rather than a sticker, you will have to make a special inquiry. Stamps are not available in all post offices. You may also need to order in advance if you need many (~20 stamps).

By the way, post offices also do sell postcards. Like stamps, postcards are not sold at every corner of the street, you can buy at sights, post offices and in some international book stores (Page One…).

By the way, for philatelists, you may purchase limited editions Chinese stamps from the China National Philatelic Center.
