Miconesia's FSM Communications branch ( bottom of page )
Mail service to and from the FSM is excellent. The United States Postal Service picks up and delivers all mail to each of the states via air service, and the FSM is part of the US Zip Code system.

These codes are: Kosrae 96944, Pohnpei 96941, Chuuk 96942, and Yap 96943.

The FSM Postal Service receives and delivers mail within each state. Mail rates from the US to the FSM and from the FSM to the US are the same as US domestic rates. International rates are also the same as those charged by the US Postal Service. Express delivery is also provided by a variety of private carriers.
