iCloud: Import a vCard

Import a vCard

You can import a virtual (electronic) card, also called a vCard, into iCloud Contacts. If the vCard contains contact information for more than one person, each contact becomes a separate entry. iCloud Contacts can import vCard format version 3.0 and later.

  1. In iCloud Contacts, click the Action pop-up menu in the sidebar, then choose Import vCard.

  2. Select a vCard to import.

The contacts from the vCard are added to the All Contacts group in Contacts. You can add the contacts to any other group by dragging them to the desired group.

If you can’t import a vCard, it may exceed the iCloud Contacts size limit. For more information, see the Apple Support article Limits for Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, and Bookmarks.
