PO Boxes in the UAE

There are no postal codes in the UAE. A Post Office box address is required when sending mail. These are available from Post Offices for an annual fee.

The address should be in the following format:

  • Recipients Name
    P.O. Box Number

Mail is sent to the particular P.O. box, which can be either private or public (more than one user) with the option to have delivery from the P.O. box to a physical address at an extra cost.

Empost Courier Services

Emirates Post offers a courier service.

Cash Bonds

Emirates Post has recently included a bonds service to customers, whereby customers can purchase national bonds from the company, in exchange for saving certificates stating the value of the purchase. This is a relatively new service helping people to save and has been possible with the alliance with the National Bonds Corporation PJSC.
