Different Types Of Addresses

Permanent Address

A person’s permanent address is the place where they are a registered resident under their name. Government documents such as voter id cards, ration cards, driving licences, and passports list permanent addresses . Many people who live away from home utilize their parents’ house as their primary residence. As a result, a permanent address is also defined as a location where the applicant gets official papers and mail. It is the official address.

Temporary Address

A temporary address of an individual refers to an address, apart from their residential address, at which they will reside or have lived for at least four weeks.

Correspondence address

A correspondence address is the address of a family member or someone you know to whom official correspondence can be delivered. This includes election ballots,  Tax and Customs Administration letters. The person in charge of such an address  must guarantee that any mail is sent to you directly.

Residential Address

The street address and any apartment number, or the location at which the mail is received if the residence does not have an address, as well as the city, state, and zip code that correspond to a person’s residence, are referred to as the residential address.

Business Address

A business address is essentially the location from where you would do business. Correspondence from suppliers, banks, and clients may be forwarded to any of your company addresses.
