Thus, Apartment 3, No. 6, Fred Street, XYZ City is written as 3/6 Fred St, XYZ City in Australia. Because this form is not always recognized, the system prompts us to "insert permanent address without special characters."
The answer is that you don't write an address without special characters. You write any valid address using the appropriate symbols to indicate the house number, street name, city, state or province, and country.
For example, suppose your apartment number is 3109. The street name is Fred Avenue. The city is Boulder, Colorado, U.S.A. Then the correct writing of the address is 3109 Fred Ave., Boulder, CO 80304-1099. Notice that I have kept the space between words the same as if the address were typed on one line. I have also kept the punctuation consistent with the rest of the sentence.
In general, when writing an address you should use a full stop (period) at the end of a sentence, a comma before the street name, and a colon after the city name. If the address contains parts of sentences, insert periods and commas where necessary to avoid creating a fragmentary sentence.
For example, my address is 123 Main Street, Anytown, CA 99999. There are two complete sentences in the writing of this address.
The street address must be written in the recipient's name. This is 98 Shirley Street in our example. If the receiver resided in an apartment, place the apartment number before the street number, followed by a slash. For example, 17/98 Shirley Street. If the recipient has more than one address, provide each one separately with its own street address.
You can write the address on both sides of the envelope if you want, but only print the address on the face of the envelope. Do not write the address on the back of the envelope or inside it, because that would make opening the letter difficult or impossible. Some people object to receiving letters with their addresses on them, but most accept this as part of modern life.
Address conventions vary between countries, but in general:
You should always include your name and phone number on any letter sent through the mail. Also include the name of the person who sent the letter if different from yourself.
Write the address in full, including names and postcodes. Use sentence case rather than title case for names and places.
Spell out numbers over 100, unless they are telephone numbers where you should write them in phone form (123-456-7890).
Other than alphanumeric keyboard characters, special characters (i.e., not A-Z or 0-9). For instance, "#, _, &,,,:". Based on nation restrictions, these special characters may or may not be legal for use in address line fields. For example, "&" is used as a separate character in some countries but represents the word "and" in others.
You can encode these characters into your web browser by typing the corresponding Unicode value into the location field. For example, if you wanted to include the pound sign ("#") in an address, you would type 0044 into the location field of your web browser.
Here are the corresponding Unicode values for some commonly used special characters: "_", "+", ",", ";": \u00B5, \u002A, \u003A, \u005C, \u007C; "=": \u003D; "<" and ">" : \u003C, \u005E; "?": \u003F.
Add your recipient's street address exactly below their name. Write to the Post Office box or the street address. If your address requires more than one line, enter your apartment or suite number on a separate line.
Examples: Mary Smith 123 Main Street Apt. 303 Chicago, IL 60654
If you want the post office to use a specific slot for your mail, mark the top of the mailing label with a stamp or draw a picture of what goes in that slot. This will help the post office deliver your letter promptly.
Do not write any other information on the box itself. That is where the address must be visible in order for the mail to reach its destination. Writing anything else on the box could lead the mail to be returned as undeliverable.
You can write your address in many different ways. The most common example is a person's name followed by "address," but you can also write it as a business, organization, or group name followed by "address," or even just an initial and a city name together with an address.
It is important to include all the necessary information in your writing. If you leave out any details, the post office may have trouble delivering your letter.
Some names are hard to read.
