Postal services

Hi, I am moving out of Switzerland. I want to have the postal mail forwarding services so that I can get the postal mails to my new address. Is there a process which I can follow?


Thanks

To my knowledge the Swiss Post forwarding service only works within Switzerland. Perhaps you could have your mail forwarded to a friend in Switzerland who could send it on to you in batches? You can place the inland forwarding order online, or (at higher cost) by completing the form at any Swiss post office.

On the page you link to there's a file"Forwarding Order Factsheet (German Version)" in pdf format. It says:

Quote:
Nachsendeauftrag Wohnungswechsel
Der Nachsendeauftrag Wohnungswechsel gilt für ein
Jahr. Bei Bedarf kann er mit einem vorübergehend
gültigen Nachsendeauftrag verlängert werden. Die
Nachsendung ist sowohl an Inlands wie an Auslandsadressen möglich. Nach Ablauf des Nachsendeauftrags werden Sendungen mit der alten Adresse an die Absender retourniert.
[...]
Der Auftrag für die Nachsendung an eine Auslandsadresse umfasst alle adressierten Briefsendungen.

Von der Nachsendung generell ausgeschlossen sind:
– In und Ausland: Sendungen mit Postlager oder
Militäradresse, InnightSendungen, die auf reinen
Paketbotentouren zugestellt werden, PromoPostSendungen sowie Gratiszeitungen
– Ausland: Gerichtsurkunden, Betreibungsurkunden,
Pakete, Sendungen mit Militäradresse


Quote:
Preise Nachsendeauftrag Wohnungswechsel
Am Schalter/Telefon Im Internet
Ausland
– Basispreis* für 12 Monate CHF 102.00 CHF 90.00

Which means you can activate a forwarding service to a foreign address.

It costs 90 Fr. for 12 month if you order it online, or 102 Fr. if you do it by phone or at the post office. This is only for letters, not packages, and excludes court documents, debt collection notifications and similar stuff, as well as advertisements, free newspapers etc.
