    Default PO Box Address.

    Hi,
    We are about to move out to Queenstown and we would like to set up a PO Box address, so that any mail from Blighty can be forwarded on to us. As we dont have a house over there yet this seems to be the best way to ensure we get our mail.
    Can anyone advise me as to how i get one as i have searched the net for a Queenstown Post Office address with no luck.

    Thanks.

    Default PO Box Address.

    Hi,

    Try this:

    http://www.nzpost.co.nz/Cultures/en-...PosteRestante/

    and this:

    http://www.nzpost.co.nz/Cultures/en-...ndPrivateBags/

    The Poste Restante is what most new immigrants use as it is cheap and flexible, whilst it seems the PO Box has to be opened in NZ.

    Maybe i'm thick or something but can anyone help?

    We don't have a forwarding address and i can't find the correct page to help me on the link above about post restante.
    I've tried e-mailing a question to see what the response is.

    We leave next Friday and i'm getting a little rattled now. No post office here is willing to redirect without a forwarding address. My parents are elderly and I can't ask them to post everything to me from thiers if i redirect to thier house.

    Could I put the address of the local post shop in Tauranga, then when we get there open a po box?

    Or should i put the motel we're staying at for the first week and then quickly get a PO box and have the mail redirected from the motel to it as soon as possible from within NZ.

    Looking forward to your replies. Thanks.

    Driver, did you click on the link at the bottom of the Post Restante page where it talks about Post Restante Locations? I had a peek and it gives the following as contact details for the Post Restante service in Tauranga:

    Tauranga: 17 Grey Street....... Phone 07 577 9911........Fax 07 577 6620
    Not forgetting the international code for NZ 0064

    Perhaps you?d need to fax or even phone them to request a box (or whatver they use) and then you can notify the UK postal redirection service of your new contact details.

    No you can open a PO box from the UK - ring up the post office, they will fax you a form to fill out, you fax it back with copies of driving licence or other ID, they charge your credit card and then email you back with your address.
    That is what we did.
