2-digit postal code areas in Iceland (defined through the first two postal code digits)

Postal codes in Iceland are made up of three digits. The codes are followed by the name of the place where the post is being distributed, which is either a municipality, the nearest city, town or village. The total number of postal codes is 149; with 18 reserved for post-office boxes, two for public institutes and larger private companies and one used for international sorting purposes only.

Terminology[edit]

The following terms have a special meaning in the list of postal codes:

  • Mail carrier: An individual who delivers mail in a postal code area where there is no dedicated post office.
  • Post vehicle: A vehicle that operates at specific hours in a postal code area where there is no dedicated post office. Residents seek their mail and deliver their mail to the post vehicle.
  • Surface mail: Mail is delivered to residents' houses in a postal code area where there is no dedicated post office.
  • Surface mail by sea: Same as surface mail, with the addition that mail has to be transported by sea as well.
