Mail forwarding - change address after 6 months

Hello everyone


My partner and I are leaving Switzerland. We would like to use the mail forwarding service from the swiss post. We understand that the service will be for a whole year. The problem is that we will be staying at our next address for about 6-8 months before relocating to our permanent address. Does anyone know if we can change the new address registered with swiss post after 6 months?


Thanks!

The mail forwarding forms can be filled out on line. In fact, you save money by doing so. It is no problem for you to change the address again when you need to.

GailGB, I used the service with Swiss Post previously when I moved within Switzerland. I have no problems getting all the mails.

Re: Mail forwarding - change address after 6 months

Why don't you have you mail redirected from Switzerland to your temporary address for the 12 month period, then, when you move to your permanent place get the mail redirected from your temporary address from then on. You will have to do that anyway as I'm assuming you'll be using your temporary address in the mean time?

Re: Mail forwarding - change address after 6 months

Sorry for resurrecting a thousand year old thread, but how did this work out for you? Can I ask to which country you had it forwarded? The process seems to give me the option to forward the mail to the US if I'd like, but I don't know how well it works. I'm considering just having it forwarded to my company's office here in CH that I've been working at and just ask them to open/scan stuff (should not be anything sensitive).
