Submit the move notification in time before moving to ensure that your information is updated as in the Population Information System and that your mail is not interrupted. Please note, the processing time starts from the date of moving. 

You can use one notification to enter your address information both in the information system we maintain and, if you wish, in the Posti’s address information system. Submit  the move notification at the earliest one month before the date of the move or at the latest one week after the move.
