Intern in Hawai’i Mail

Mail call! For any length of period you’re abroad, your friends, family, and loved ones may want to send you a care package, important mail, debit or credit cards, or even cell phones if you need a replacement.

Your best mailing address may not be known until you arrive onsite. When you arrive, and especially if you need to have something mailed to you, please ask your Site Director for the best address.

While your friends a family will be sending you mail within the United States, mail typically takes at least a week to get from the mainland to Hawai’i. If anyone is sending a package or a letter please make sure that they understand that the mail can take up to 10 days to arrive in Hawai’i.

Travelling after the program for an extended period? Don’t want to carry your semester’s worth of luggage around with you and pay hefty luggage overage charges? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you may want to look into whether or not luggage shipping services fit your travel needs.

No matter how long you are abroad, you should plan ahead and try to pack light to avoid needing to ship your luggage! You will acquire plenty of souvenirs and gifts while abroad, so make sure you have space for them when you return!

Here’s a list of companies that offer shipping services:
