Terms for temporary redirection


Temporary redirection entails that post is forwarded to a temporary postal address in Norway or abroad, for the agreed period. The service may be used by private individuals and may concern one, several or all persons in a household.

A temporary redirection agreement is deemed to have been established when Posten has received a fully completed and correct order, and Posten has sent confirmation to the customer.

Forwarding concerns addressed post, including:

  • Letters
  • Small parcels
  • Registered letters
  • Insured letters
  • Postal subscriptions for newspapers and magazines

Parcels are only forwarded if so requested by the post recipient. The cost of forwarding parcels is paid by the post recipient on delivery.

The following exceptions apply:

  • Forwarding of post cannot be offered for private post addressed to a company (workplace) or institution (hospital, school, hotel, hostel, etc.), or for post addressed Poste Restante.
  • Post with contents (objects) requiring a customs declaration is not forwarded to abroad.

Forwarding can be ordered for up to six months. The period can be renewed by entering into a new agreement. 

Forwarding can start at the earliest four business days from ordering on Posten's website.

Changes to a service ordered

The customer may cancel the service no later than one business day before the agreed start date. Concerning any reimbursement, the customer must contact Customer Service by telephone before the agreed start date.

Before the agreed end date, the customer may interrupt a service that has commenced. No reimbursement is made.

The customer may extend a service that has been ordered or commenced. Costs will accrue for the extension of the service.

If the customer wishes to change to a new address when a change of address is registered, this will be considered to be a new order.
