Registered mail is a mail service with records of posting and receipt and the sender can track a registered mail item after it is posted. Registered mail is applicable to inland and overseas letters and small packets but not parcels (registration fee is already included in the postage on parcels). Registered mail can further be divided into:
Registered mail items must be posted at post offices. Any registered mail item sent to a local PO Box must have the name of the PO Box’s holder written on the item in addition to the number of the PO Box. The registration fee is $15.5 per item for all kinds of mail (in addition to normal postage). An additional fee of $11 per item is required for registered mail with advice of delivery.
Delivery of registered mail takes 1-2 days longer than ordinary mail.
The postman will deliver each registered mail item door-to-door once. The addressee has to present his / her identity card and sign the receipts. If the postman is unable to deliver the item on that occasion, a notification card will be left, and the addressee can collect the mail from the designated post office with the card and his / her identity card. For registered mail to a PO Box, a notification card will be put into the box. The holder of the PO box can collect the mail at the post office counter with the notification card and his / her identity card.
