Register a special postal address with the Swedish Tax Agency if you want your mail to be delivered to an address other than your address in the population register for a period of at least six months. This applies both in Sweden and abroad. It does not cost anything to register a special postal address.
A special postal address is a complement to your address in the population register. There is thus no change to your population registration.
You can use the e-service Särskild postadress to report a special postal address in Sweden or abroad. Register the address in advance, but not more than one month before the special postal address is to take effect. You can also use the e-service to terminate a special postal address.
Report a special postal address in the e-service or terminate your current special postal address. The e-service is only available in Swedish.
Do you not have electronic identification?
The special postal address is automatically distributed to the majority of government agencies and other companies that obtain information from the population register.
However, you may also need to inform private individuals, associations and organisations of which you a member of, magazines you subscribe to and companies you want to be sure have your special address.
Forwarding means that mail sent to your address in the population register is forwarded to your special address. If you want your mail to be forwarded, you can order this paid service from Svensk Adressändring AB.
You can register a special postal address in Sweden or abroad. If you are going to live abroad for more than one year, you do not register a special postal address. In this case, you report a move abroad. You can find more information about this under Moving from Sweden.
When you no longer want the special postal address to apply, you must register this using the e-service Särskild postadress.
If it is not possible for you to use the e-service, you can use the form Anmälan – Särskild postadress, SKV 7844 (only available in Swedish. Send it to the address on the form.
Please note that the special postal address does not cease to apply automatically if you report a change of address and change your address in the population register.
If you have a secure digital mailbox for mail from government agencies, you will receive a message as soon as your address in the population register is changed. This service is free of charge and is a quick and secure way to keep an eye on your address.
In the digital mailbox, you choose whether you want to receive a text message or an email when you have official mail from the Swedish Tax Agency or other authorities.
