如何邮寄信件或明信片:国际

Send International Mail: 逐步说明

第 1 步:Ask, 'Can I send this?'

第 1 步:Ask, "Can I Send This?"

Different countries have different rules on what they’ll allow in. Look up your destination country in the Index of Countries and Localities to make sure you’re following their rules.

If you’re just sending correspondence (no trading cards, bookmarks, stickers, etc.) or nonnegotiable documents (just paper; no cash, checks, or other items that have cash value), you don’t need a customs form.

提醒: You can only use First-Class Mail International® service to send correspondence (like a personal or business letter) or other nonnegotiable documents in a letter that weighs up to 3.5 oz or large envelope that weighs under 15.994 oz.

第 2 步:Choose your envelope or postcard.

10 号信封与最小和最大信封尺寸的比较

Just like U.S. letters, international letters must be rectangular and made of paper to qualify for letter prices. Letter envelopes for international mail can be 11-1/2" long x 6-1/8" high. (标准 10 号信封是 9-1/2 英寸长 x 4-1/8 英寸高。)您可以折叠放入信封的东西,但它需要保持平整 —— 不超过 1/4 英寸的厚度。

提示:If your letter can’t fit through USPS® mail processing equipment, it’s "nonmachinable" and you’ll have to pay $0.30 more to send it. (请参阅步骤 4 中的附加邮资。) Nonmachinable items include envelopes that are lumpy or rigid, or have clasps, string, or buttons. You’ll also have to pay more if your envelopes are square or vertical (taller than they are wide).

If you want to send letter-sized correspondence without folding it, you can use a large envelope (called a 'flat"); the postage for international flats starts at $2.60. If your large envelope is nonrectangular, rigid (can't bend), or lumpy (not uniformly thick), you'll have to pay the package price.

明信片: Standard postcards are usually made of thick paper (cardstock), are between 5-1/2" to 6" long and 3-1/2" to 4-1/4" high, and are no more than 0.016" thick. Sending a regular-sized, rectangular postcard from the U.S. to another country costs the same as sending a letter.

尺寸和重量要求 – 明信片和信封
第 3 步:Address your mail: Write the return address in the top left corner, and put USA on the bottom line. In the center, write the delivery address, with the destination country on the bottom line. Also write AIR MAIL / PAR AVION in an available space.

第 3 步:为您的邮件写明地址

International address formats are different for each country. You also need to write the delivery address in English (if you need to use another language, add the English translation after each line).

信封: Write your address (the "return" or "sender" address) in the top left corner (and put "USA" on the last line). Write the delivery address in the center (near the bottom). Put the destination country's name (in English) on the last line.

明信片: 明信片有不同的格式,所以请在空白处写下投递地址(在您写下信息并粘贴邮票的同一面)。

International Address Format Tips

  • 以大写字母整洁地打印地址。
  • 用钢笔或记号笔书写。
  • Don’t use commas or periods.

书写寄件人地址

Write your address in the U.S. (the “return address”) in the top-left corner. 分行书写以下信息:

  • 您的全名或公司名称
  • 公寓或套房号
  • 完整街道地址
  • City, State, and ZIP+4 Code®
  • USA

写下投递地址

Write the delivery address in the bottom center of the envelope.

You must write the delivery address in English, though you can include the delivery address in another language (like Russian, Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, Japanese, or Chinese), if you write the English translation after each line.

Many countries use different address formats (for example, the Postal Code might go before the city). Get specific information about other countries’ postal addresses by going to the Universal Postal Union and clicking "Postal Addressing Systems (PAS)".

Generally, include the following on separate lines:

  • 收件人全名或公司名称
  • 完整街道地址
  • City, Subdivision (like province, state, county), and Postal Code
  • 国家/地区

See more on addresses in the International Mail Manual.

Address Example (United Kingdom):

MR THOMAS CLARK
117 RUSSELL DRIVE
LONDON W1P 6HQ
《UNITED KINGDOM

注意: If you're sending mail to a U.S. territory, U.S. military base, or U.S. embassy in another country (APO/FPO/DPO mail), see How to Send a Letter or Postcard: 国内

重要提示: When you send using First-Class Mail International, you must write "AIRMAIL/PAR AVION" on the address side of your postcard, letter, or large envelope.

When you're done addressing your envelope, put what you’re sending inside the envelope, then close and seal it.

第 4 步:Calculate and apply postage, putting a Global Forever stamp on the same side as the address: top right for envelopes, and in the provided space on postcards.

第 4 步:计算和贴付邮资

For just 1 $1.30 First-Class Mail International Global Forever stamp, you can send a 1 oz letter or postcard to any other country in the world.

Put stamps in the upper right corner of the envelope. (For postcards, put the stamp in the space provided near the delivery address.)

If your letter is heavier or bigger, if your postcard is large or square, or if you want to add extra services, you'll need to pay more.

Postage for international letters depends on weight, size/shape, and the price group of the country that you’re sending to. (See the Country Price Groups listing.)

You can weigh your letter with a kitchen scale, postal scale, at a self-service kiosk, or at the Post Office counter.

提示:As a rule of thumb, you can send a 1 oz letter (4 sheets of regular printer paper and a business-sized envelope) or a postcard—to any country in the world—for 1 First-Class Mail® Global Forever stamp (currently $1.30). You can also use any other combination of stamps that adds up to $1.30.

大信封(或统一邮资信封)的 1 盎司邮资起价是 2.60 美元。

哪里可以购买邮资?

其他邮资

If your letter weighs over 1 oz, you can buy additional postage in the amount you need, up to 3.5 oz. (Also, you can mail a large envelope that weighs up to 15.994 oz, paying the rate for large envelopes [flats].):

提示:Put the stamp on last; that way, if you make a mistake at any other point, you won’t waste a stamp.

额外服务

If you want insurance, proof of delivery, special handling, signature services, or other optional services, you’ll have to pay extra. Note that not all extra services are available for all products; our International Insurance & Extra Services page has more details.

When you go to the Post Office to mail First-Class Mail International letters, some of the more common extra services that you can add include:

  • Registered Mail®:Requires that the recipient sign for the mail to confirm delivery (or attempted delivery). Registered items are handled separately and securely while in the U.S.—destination country procedures may vary. The office of mailing will keep a mailing receipt, and the office of destination will keep a record of delivery.
  • 退回收据:Available as an add-on when you use Registered Mail service to send a First-Class Mail International item. When you mail the item from a Post Office, a card is attached. When the item is delivered (or delivery is attempted), the card is signed and sent to you as a delivery record. (Note that some countries may not require a recipient signature.)
  • Certificate of Mailing: Proof that you mailed something from a Post Office location.

A Note on Tracking: You can’t get tracking on First-Class Mail International letters. You can use Registered Mail service with Return Receipt, or use a USPS international package shipping service that offers tracking.

提示:If you’re sending large envelopes (flats) using Priority Mail® International, Priority Mail Express® International, or First-Class Package International Service®, you can use Click-N-Ship® service to pay for and print your own postage online.
