Poste Restante is an inexpensive service for receiving letters, parcels and messages while you’re visiting New Zealand from overseas.
The Poste Restante service provides you with:
- a location to hold mail and parcels until you are ready to collect them.
- a location to redirect mail to.
- a place to leave messages for you.
You don't need to register - simply let others know which Poste Restante address you want your mail forwarded to and it will arrive ready for you to collect.
Your mail items can be held for a maximum of 2 months, after which any unclaimed letters or parcels will be returned to the sender.
