Are you temporarily living at another address, or do you currently have no permanent address at all? Then you can use Poste Restante.
With Poste Restante, you receive mail as usual, even though you are temporarily residing away from home or do not have a permanent address.
How it works
Your letter is addressed as follows:
- Your name
- Poste Restante (written in the street address field)
- Postalcode (the right postalcode can be found here: Search for postalcode.)
- Postal town
The mail can be collected from the nearest partner outlet. To collect your mail, you state your name and show your ID. Any mail that is not collected is returned to the sender after 30 days.
Can Poste Restante consignments be sent anywhere?
No, to find out where you can retrieve your mail, you can use the Search for postal code and address function. In the “Address or PO box number” field, under the “Search for postal code” title, you can enter "Poste Restante” to obtain a list of the postal towns in which the service can be used. In order to then get information about the nearest distribution point for your mail, you can go to Search for service point and enter the postal code for one of the locations where the service is available.
