Hongkong Post announces "One Person, One Letter" Free Post Day

     Hongkong Post will hold "One Person, One Letter" Free Post Day on October 9, the date marking the establishment of the Universal Postal Union (UPU) in 1874 and subsequently declared World Post Day by the UPU Congress in 1969.

     "Letters are a powerful way to convey tender love and care.  In an era when personal interactions are increasingly dominated by electronic means, expression by writing carries unique sentimental meaning.  To encourage people to connect to somebody special, Hongkong Post is pleased to hold the 'One Person, One Letter' Free Post Day for the eighth consecutive year," said Acting Postmaster General Mr Eddie Mak.

     On Free Post Day, everyone may send a letter free of postage to any designated recipient in Hong Kong.  Special collection boxes will be placed at all post offices (except the two mobile ones) to receive these letters from October 7 to 9.  The letters will be delivered on October 10. Relevant details are attached.

     Further information about "One Person, One Letter" Free Post Day may be obtained from any post office, the website of Hongkong Post at, or via the Hongkong Post hotline on 2921 2222.
