Q:

How do you address a letter to someone in care of another party?

A:

When addressing a mailing or package to an individual "in care of" another party, you must follow a specific format. That format includes the name of the individual, the name of the owner of the place that is receiving the mail and the address.

  1. Use the top line to identify the desired recipient

    Enter the name of the person to whom you are sending the package on the top line.

  2. Enter "c/o" and the name of the receptacle or residence owner on the second line

    If you are mailing a package to John Doe at the address of Jane Doe, you would write: John Doe C/O Jane Doe

  3. Complete the address as usual

    The remainder of the address should be written in the usual format, including house number, apartment number, street name, city, state, postal or zip code, and country, if needed.

  • Q:

    How do you address an international letter?

    A:

    According to the United States Postal Service, an international letter requires at least four address lines: the name of the addressee, the postal box or street address, the city and postal code and the full country name. Because so much U.S. mail is read by machines instead of people, the address should be printed clearly in uppercase Roman letters.
