In its turn, Latvijas Pasts will continue to deliver items in accordance with the currently valid address index territories – no changes are planned in them.
Along with the administrative-territorial reform, Latvijas Pasts calls on all users of postal services – both natural and legal persons – to take care of the correct registration of addresses if the name of the respective county changes in the course of the reform.
“The most accurate address record will help to process items faster, without delaying the overall mail exchange process,” says Gundega Vārpa, Head of the External Communications Management Department of Latvijas Pasts.
“It is desirable to introduce the new address record or the new name of the county already now, in order to make it easier to get used to,” G. Vārpa points out.
After the reform, Latvijas Pasts employees will have to pay more attention to sorting items. The company encourages customers to make appropriate changes to the recipients’ address records, including online store profiles, so that mail can be processed faster and more accurately. Residents of the new counties must also remember the correct record when subscribing to the press.
Names of cities and parishes, index – in address entries will not change after the reform. For example, a letter should be sent to Jānis Kalniņš, who lives in “Rozē”, Bunkas Parish, Priekule District, postal code LV-3446. In the future, instead of Priekule district, South Kurzeme district will have to be written, but the parish, house name and postal code will not change.
“It is very important that in the future the smallest units of the address – city, parish and index – are precisely indicated,” emphasizes G. Vārpa.
Latvijas Pasts reminds that when indicating the address of the item, the following information must be included: name / surname of the addressee or name of the legal entity, street, house and apartment number or name of the house, city / parish, county, postal code.
After the 2021 municipal elections, there will be 43 municipalities instead of the current 119.
