How to Import a vCard on a Mac

By Bennett Gavrish

Many computer address book applications, including Apple Address Book and Microsoft Outlook, store contact information in a format of files called vCards. Computer users can save their contact data as a vCard file, then send it to another person to view. For Mac users, vCard files can be imported directly through the Address Book application.

Things You'll Need

  • Mac running OS X 10.5 or later

Step 1

Open the Address Book application by clicking on its icon in the Dock.

Step 2

Open the "File" menu at the top of the screen and expand the "Import" options.

Step 3

Select "vCard" from the list of import options.

Step 4

Navigate to the location of the vCard file that you wish to import into your Address Book.

Step 5

Select the vCard file, then click "Open." The importing process should take less than a minute to complete.
