Important information

Swiss Post’s obligation to provide information

If legitimate interest can be credibly established, Swiss Post must disclose the name and address of the customer to whom the sub-address is addressed.

Addressing

Only the recipient’s name may vary on letters to sub-addresses. The other address details must match the main address.

Letters shall be delivered to the main address if:

  • they are correctly addressed

Letters shall be delivered to the domicile address of the sub-addressee if:

  • the domicile address is used instead of the main address
  • the private letter box of the sub-addressee is written to correctly

If this is not the case, the letters are returned to the sender. Alternatively, in addition to the sub-address, sub-addressees can open the forwarding order “redirect mail”, so that all letters are delivered to the holder of a main address.

Exception: Letters to sub-addresses that have the domicile address of the holder and belong to the same household will continue to be redirected to the main addressee free of charge.
