    I know not the USPS of which you speak but HK Post does have a mail redirection service which may be activated by completing the cunningly named 'Application For Redirection of Correspondence' Form.

    Actually they charge HK$100 for the first three months and then HK$250 for the next 12 months after that.

    In all fairness to the OP, the information isn't on the main page, but a simple search on the site will reveal the information.

    Full details of the service are here:

    It also takes a little while to activate.

    It takes a week to activate. It takes about 5 seconds in the post office. Hardly a major chore. I've recently done it and it is very efficient.

    It would be strange to be done online. When I did this for both my Australian and NZ addresses they required personal ID to be given to ensure that somebody could not just forward my mail without my knowledge or authorisation. Fair enough!

    There is something called credit card! USPS charges u $1 for just verifying your address and identity.
