What happens to my registered mail if the addressee has moved?
If the addressee has an active contract with the Forwarding Department at bpost, we will forward your item to his/her new address. If the addressee does not have a contract, your item will be returned to you with registered mail. Make sure that your name and address are clearly written on the item.
