Press Release issued on 24 November 2011
Hongkong Post holiday arrangements for Christmas
Hongkong Post announced today (November 24) that the last date for posting Christmas mail for local delivery before Christmas Day will be December 22 (Thursday). Postings after this date might run the risk of not being delivered in time because of the anticipated seasonal work pressure. Members of the public are advised to post mail as early as possible in order to avoid a last-minute rush.
During the Christmas holidays (i.e. December 26 and 27), there will be no mail delivery. All post offices will be closed except the General Post Office and the Airport Post Office. The business hours of the two offices will be from 9am to 5pm and 8am to 5pm respectively. One mail collection will be arranged on December 27 for all street posting boxes except those on outlying islands and in remote areas.
To ensure that greetings sent by air mail are delivered before Christmas, members of the public are reminded to post their mail on or before the last dates for posting as LINK below:
