List of postal codes in the Faroe Islands
The postal codes in the Faroe Islands, used by the postal service Posta, consist of the country's code "FO" followed by a three-digit code, e.g. FO 927 Akrar. Previously, the Islands formed part of the Danish postal code system using the 38xx range and the prefix "FR", for example, FR 3800 Tórshavn.
In the Faroese language, names of locations are inflected and can stand in dative on addresses, like: FO 927 Økrum (akrar means acres; if someone lives "in the acres", he is living in whom? - thus dative). However, this is not relevant for letters from abroad, but may be interesting for philatelists.
