  • 1583 form- the why and how


    Form 1583 is a legal document that allows us to receive your mail. To ensure the safety of your mail, US postal regulations require us to receive your explicit permission via this form.

    You will find a pre-filled version in your account to sign. The form must be notarized by an official notary. 

    Depending on your country location, you may use a local official like an attorney or a bank representative to notarize the form or use our online notary service to set up an appointment and complete it online.


  • What is a notary and where can I find one?


    A notary is a licensed official who will verify your identity and provide an official stamp on the USPS Form 1583. This stamp (in English or the local language) is required on your Form 1583 for completion.

    Some options to get the form notarized include the following:

    • Notarize via Zoom call with US Global Mail’s online notary service. 
    • Using a local official, such as an attorney or bank official, who can provide a similar stamp. Notarization can take place in the country you reside in. 
    • Call your country’s US Embassy for the service, if you’re a US citizen.

    Note: Notary services do incur a small fee in most cases.
