Setting Up US Mail Forwarding
Once you’ve decided to use a US mail Forwarding service, what now? The U.S. Postal Service regulates “commercial mail receiving agencies” (CMRAs) and requires anyone using one to fill out a form (#1583 – downloadable from the USPS Website). Spouses may use a single form, but non-married partners must file separate forms authorizing mail forwarding. You must present identification documents when filing the form.
While common in the U.S., the mail-forwarding industry is less developed in many other countries. Even those who are not moving from the U.S., however, can make use of U.S.- based services. If you’re moving from the Czech Republic, for example, to Costa Rica, you could still retain a mail-forwarding service for mail you anticipate coming from the United States – merchandise orders from catalogs, for example.
One less worry.
US Mail forwarding services take care of a major concern for travelers and transferees. Along with online banking, automatic bill-paying, and Internet shopping, it is one more valuable service making life easier for those abroad.
