Change of Address

Change of address refers to a notification where a mail recipient informs Posti that the address is about to expire and communicates the new address. Change of address is free of charge. Based on the change of address, Posti will forward to the new address all letter items and universal service parcels (Postal Parcels) sent to the old address, unless agreed otherwise with the sender.

Online is the most convenient way of carrying out a change of address. You can log into the service using your online bank ID, a Posti user ID or an identity card with a chip.

You can also order the service using a printed form and the accompanying return envelope. Forms are available at postal outlets.

You can notify a change of address by calling at 0295 535 535 (local call charge/mobile charge) Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
