When changing and updating some of the postal codes, Eesti Post adheres to the modern city plan and post office locations. At the moment, the problem is that since shipments are distributed between post offices based on postal codes, letters and parcels end up at inconveniently distant post offices. The change enforced in October will ensure that the postal codes match the post office locations and in the future, clients can use the post office closest to them for all post-related operations.
You can view the specific addresses whose postal codes will change on the Omniva homepage.
We will notify people ahead to make sure that everyone has enough time in August and September to inform all the institutions and people who send shipments to their addresses of the new postal code. The correct postal code on letters and parcels ensures that the shipment will reach the addressee on time. If a letter sent after 1 October has the old postal code, unfortunately, it cannot be ensured that it will reach the addressee’s post box in time. If a parcel sent after 1 October has the old postal code, then it will be issued from the former post office of place of residence, which may not be the closest.
The currently valid postal codes can be viewed by address from the postal code search on the Omniva homepage.
