Post Box in Switzerland

Hellow,

In March I am moving to Geneva. It will take some time before I find a flat. Meanwhile I will need an address for receiving mail. I thought about applying for a POB. Does anyone knows if the Swiss Post requires a proof of living address in Geneva?

Also, does anyone have experience with the service Swiss Post Box (http://swisspostbox.com/en)?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Ofer

Re: Post Box in Switzerland

There is a waiting list for PO boxes.

Post Restante is free of charge, and they keep stuff for up to one month, just choose a convenient post office, and get
your mail sent there, for your later collection. Just take an ID to the public counter.

Hi Ofer

Swiss Post Box is a quite intresting solution and I use it as well. You don't need to live in Switzerland to get an address and you have access to your letters wherever you are.

See more details in this youtube video:

You find some details on this blog: http://nearfuturelaboratory.com/past...-the-physical/

or directly under: www.swisspostbox.com/en
