Advance Postal Addresses
General Delivery mail is handled by the Official Mail Center. All personal mail is delivered by the US Postal Service, for both on-base housing and dormitory residents. For dormitory residents only, personal mail packages sent via third-party carriers (UPS, FedEx, DHL) delivery will be sent to the OMC for pick-up. Before sending any mail to Beale AFB, you or your sponsor will need to open a General Delivery Box in your name. To do so, a copy of your orders will need to be brought to the Official Mail Center (OMC) and a form will need to be completed with your information. If you fail to open a box and mail gets delivered to the OMC, your mail will get returned to sender. Once a General Delivery box has been opened, all packages/mail sent to general delivery will be held at the OMC until arrival. Upon arrival and assignment to permanent quarters you will need to complete a local USPS change of address form and notify the OMC staff of your new address. The Official Mail Center can be contacted by phone at 530-634-2970/530-368-2970.
