Postal and Telephone Service


Postal Service

Mail and parcels can be sent from the post office nearest your home. All local and international mail is handled by the post office, which also acts as a financial institution, similar to banks. For international mail, you can also use EMS, which is a rapid overseas parcel and mail delivery system.
(Postal services: ☎1588-1300, Financial services: ☎1588-1900)

Local Postal Service

  • Generally, mail sent through the local postal service is delivered by the next day, but it might take longer for mail to be delivered to island or mountain regions. The postal fees differ according to the region to which the mail is sent, and if the weight or size exceeds the standard, the package must meet certain requirements and additional fees must be paid.

International Express Mail Service

  • The International Express Mail Service safely and quickly delivers packages of up to 30kg to about 130 countries around the world. Some countries, including Australia, the Philippines, Argentina, and Bangladesh, restrict packages to a weight of 20kg or less.
  • The items that are handled include mail, documents, letters of credit, books, exchange checks of financial institutions, cassette tapes, video tapes, and various other products. Please check in advance before sending any products that may be prohibited in the destination country.

Inquiries regarding any problems may be made by calling 100 or 106.
