Temporary redirection

Are you going away for a while and want to receive your post where you are?

Temporary redirection is used when you know that you will return to the original address. You keep your regular address in our register. If you are not coming back, you should order permanent change of address.

We forward all mail sent through Posten to Norway and abroad. Packages can be forwarded within Norway for a fee.

Fill out the form and hand it in at Posten or use the web service (in Norwegian).

Application deadline

When ordering online, the order must be made at least two business days before the redirection will start. When ordering at Posten, the deadline is eight business days.

How to use the web service:

  • Use BankID, or one of the other options that comes up and log in.
  • Register both today's address and where the mail will be sent, as well as how long the mail shall be redirected.
  • Pay with Visa or Mastercard.
