Remember the correct address

When sending Christmas greetings, please make sure you have the correct address details on your cards and parcels. Each Christmas greeting should include the recipient’s first and last name, street address, building number, stairway and apartment number, and the city or municipality. You can check the correct format of street names and postal codes at

When sending parcels, we recommend also including the recipient’s phone number, since they will then receive the notice of arrival more quickly. If you are missing the phone number, please purchase the Additional Paper Arrival Notification service and send your parcel by Thursday, December 14, for the recipient to get their paper notice of arrival on time.
