  • Managing your forwarding address

    After receiving letters and packages at your US Global Mail address, you might want to get the items where you are. That’s when you need to add a forwarding address (for example: your new overseas address) to your account. 

    The forwarding addresses can be either in the US or overseas. We can also forward to APO addresses. 

    You can add UNLIMITED addresses to your account, and forward your items to different addresses every time. No worries even if you move around; forward the items to where you are. 

     

    ADD OR UPDATE A FORWARDING ADDRESS

    NOTE: Changing an address does NOT automatically update on your open shipments. If you need to update the addresses for any shipments, you need to edit for each shipment.  


    1. Log In To Your Account, click on “Manage Address Book”
