Singapore - Postal Service and Mail Delivery


SingPost, Singapore's postal services company, operates a network of post offices, post boxes and Self Automated Machines (SAMS) that are conveniently located throughout the island. You can pay bills (such as your mobile phone bill) and fines (e.g. parking fines) using a SingPost SAM.

Financial services are available through SingPost, too. Through their strategic partnerships they offer a large variety of financial planning solutions including loans, saving plans, credit cards and lines of credit.

Fax and air-parcel postage services to worldwide destinations are available at all outlets. SingPost also leases out self-storage space to individuals and businesses in search for some extra space. SingPost is considered to be fast and reliant.

There are also express services and many courier companies that offer services to local and international destinations. Their rates will vary depending on what you are sending, the size of the package, and how much it weighs. The major courier services available are:

DHL International 1800-285-8888
Federal Express 1800-743-2626
OCS Courier Services 6225-1366
TNT Express Worldwide 1800-745-3122
United Parcel Services (UPS) 1800-738-3388

To mail something within Singapore, it is not necessary to include the name of the country, although “Singapore” is still considered the city name. An example of mailing something domestically would be:

Mr. M. Rajendran
Blk 35 Mandalay Road
# 13-37 Mandalay Towers
SINGAPORE 308215

If someone from another country is mailing something to you, then the address would be:

Mr. M. Rajendran
Blk 35 Mandalay Road
# 13-37 Mandalay Towers
SINGAPORE 308215
Republic of Singapore

Write the return address on the back of the envelope and never write either of the addresses in red ink. In addition, do not write anything in the clear zone at the bottom of the envelope.

Post offices are open through the week from 8.30 am to 5 pm and until 1 pm on Saturday. Some post offices are open until 8:00 pm on Wednesdays, and the post offices at the airport is open from 6:00 am to midnight every day. You can find a list of all of Singapore’s post offices and their operating hours here: http://www.singpost.com/our-network/post-offices.html?catid=36&id=45 It is also possible to find postal codes by entering in the address on SingPost’s website.

If you want to receive your mail at a neutral location other than your home or office, you can rent a PO box. Some expats find this helpful, especially when they first arrive in Singapore and haven’t yet had time to find a more permanent residence. Depending on which location you get your PO box at, your annual fees can be either S$107 or S$160 for an individual.

Storage services are also available if you are moving or need someplace to hold your items during a transition. Some people also use storage spaces for their inventory if they have a small business. The S3 Self Storage Solutions has affordable rates and contracts. Lockers, small rooms, medium rooms, and large rooms are all available.
