How to address a letter or parcel to USA? Tips on address formatting

Here is a quick guide for addressing parcels/letters to USA. There are two main types of U.S. addresses:
residential addresses & PO boxes. 



(1) Residential Address

Example

UK address format
U.S. address format
Mr John Smith
Apartment 7
118 Hammersmith Grove
Ms Amanda Smith
Apartment 1b
213 Pond Street 
London
Boston, MA  02130
W6 7HB
USA
UK


UK and U.S. residential addresses have very few differences. As similar as the two might seem, it is important not to get the UK and the U.S. letter address format mixed up.
  • (1) Firstly, write the state of the city  / town / village which you would like to send your parcel to after the its name.
  • (2) Secondly, in the USA the postcode comes after the name of the state.

(2) PO Box

Example
UK address format
U.S. address format
Mr John Smith
Apartment 7
118 Hammersmith Grove
Mr Kyle
200 Boston Ave
PO Box 104 
London
Seattle, WA 98109
W6 7HB
USA
UK

  • (3) If you would like to send a parcel to a PO box, insert its number below the address of the the receiver. Make sure to contact your carrier before booking your parcel delivery to USA. Some carriers may have PO box restrictions.
