    Yes, it exists. It's short for "please let us know when you receive this letter, package, etc."

    As I've said, it's just shorthand. "Please advise us......." would be much better.

    I mean, is "us" necessary,?

    "Please advise us upon receipt"?

    or can we also write:

    "Please advise upon receipt".

    Thank you

    "Please advise us upon receipt"? I like this one better.

    or can we also write:

    "Please advise upon receipt". You can write this. The recipient will know what it means.

    Thank you

    It definitely exists. . . you've just typed it and I've just read it.

    So if it didn't exist before, it does now.
