Correct Address Format for the Philippines

Can anyone give me the correct format for writing a residental postal address in the Philippines? I have looked online, and asked 3 different friends (all recently from the Philippines), and received different answers from all. At the very least, can someone tell me where to put the zip code; in front of the city name or behind it? Also, I have heard and read conflicting information about whether or not the Baranguay # is ncessary. It seems that the sub-division is a part of the address too. Help me please. Is there a former Philippines postal worker in the house?

The following (not the real address information) is the best example that I have so far. Can anyone tell me how to correctly format this address or verify that it is ok as is?

Name

7500 Nangka Street, PHHC Camarin Area D

Brgy. 178

Caloocan City, Metro Manila, 1422

Philippines

Thanking you in advance.

Thanking you in advance.

Your format is fine. I usually place the zip code after the country.

Name

Street number

Baranggay

City/Town, Province, Philippines

Zip code

This is how I address packages sent to and from the Philippines. I'm sure others have used other formats with no problems.

I have a fiance in the Philippines and have sent 2 letters over a month ago and neither has been delivered.  We are just starting the K-1 visa process, and plan to be getting married on her arrival to the US in June 2008.  is it common for them to loose mail that is not addressed exactly as specified?

Wich of the following address formats is most corect? :

Number one:
Name

PRK TAGUILE

PANGABUGAN

BUTUAN city agusan del Norte

Philippines 8600

 

Number two:

Name

PRK tangueli pangabugan

butuan city 8600 a

gusan del Norte

Philippines

 

Or is there another format that is more proper?

The main question I want to ask is who did you send the letters with, was it the USPS or someone like FedEx? I ask this because if you sent it through the USPS then it gets handed off to Philpost in Manila where it's a 50/50 shot if it ever arrives at all.

 

The majority of us if he have to send anything use Fedex, UPS, or someone else.

 

BTW  I love Butuan City my wife is from Mindanao and we have been through that city a few times.

2008?  :lol:    Ya I know.. typo.  ;) 

 

PhilPost has a motto.. we rarely deliver, come rain or shine.   :girlwerewolf2xn:

 

PhilPost is so reliable that MERALCO has their own person deliver our monthly utility bill... ;) 

 

If you NEED to send something to the Philippines and you want it to arrive, you use FEDEX, UPS, DHL or LBC (last two are not available everywhere in the USA).

As others have said, if you used USPS that is your problem and it will most likely never arrive. That is due to PhilPost not USPS. My preference is LBC or DHL. I have both close to me here in Hawaii. not sure if you do where you live. Next would be FedEx but it will cost more than the other 2.
