This is a service provided by the Post Office whereby clients will be enabled to:
inform the Post Office that they have moved and/or changed their addresses;
request the Post Office to forward their mail to the new address.
This is a service whereby mail is redirected at the client’s request for a specified period to an address provided by the client.
The application for the change of address or redirection of mail must be in writing on the relevant form which is available from all post offices.

A request for the change of address for more than one person must only be acted on if the signature of each person has been furnished, except where an application is made by the head of the family on behalf of his/her household.
