Whether you’re a digital nomad, full-time traveler, or remote business owner, the question remains the same: how do you handle your mail?

With an on the go lifestyle you may easily fall behind on your physical mail with the traditional handling of snail mail. If you’re looking to upgrade your mailing solution into something convenient, versatile, and flexible that’s where the virtual mailbox comes in.

A virtual mailbox offers a permanent address in the US so you can travel and work remotely without worrying about accessing your physical mail. It’s an online mailbox that will give you 24/7 access, instant email notifications, and the ability to view and manage mail securely with the click of a button.

To get started on your VirtualPostMail

Complete the USPS 1583 form - you will find detailed directions and resources to complete this form here.

Change of Address With USPS - a change of address is a request to have USPS forward your mail to a new destination address. This can either be temporary or permanent, and it can be done online or in person. You can learn how to file a change of address with USPS here.

Have your mail and packages sent to the new virtual mailbox address as soon as the mail arrives. It will be scanned and uploaded to your virtual mailbox account.

Log in to your new virtual mailbox account and decide on options for mail scanning, mail forwarding, deleting, shredding, or storing.
