Default PO Box No

is there a way to find out an actual address that relates to a PO Box No?

I am not sure there is one.

Most of the expats who worked where I worked, if they needed a parcel delivered that required a physical address (if that is what this is about), had it sent to work instead of to a PO Box. All of the Arabs and Subcontinent workers did that and it was accepted, understood and encouraged by management.

Thanks.
I'm trying to track down a company address, but only have their PO Box No address, and when i google the company they have several locations and hence why i was wondering if it was possible to track an address to an actual PO Box no.

Ring them.

Also, getting someone's makhani (sp) number is a handy way of finding them...

Yes, just ring them - but I am not sure that buildings there have numbers as in a Western address system (and the further you get from the CBD, the less likely that is) - though they were supposed to be introducing one at some point?

I suppose what I am saying is be prepared for the address to be "[Name of Company] Building, Street name, behind the mosque/next to KFC/etc"

So, there's a company you want to get hold of or visit or post to and you have no information for them other than their PO Box?

You should work for Souq. That's how they sign up their sellers....

Default Re: PO Box No

simple answer is no. The PO Box number refers to a PO Box in one of the Emirates Post Offices. Our office is in JLT but the PO Box is in Karama
