for mailing letters or packages to or from Iceland,
such as postal rates to (or from) Iceland, finding Iceland addresses, etc.

When mailing an envelope or postcard, leave at least the bottom 16 millimeters (5/8 inch) blank on both front and back. (The postal service's reading and sorting machines might need this space to print bar codes on your mail.)

Address Format Information

English-language version of Iceland Post home page.

If the letter's contents are delicate and the envelope may not be folded for it to be put in a mailbox it is imperative to write "Má ekki brjóta" in the bottom right corner on the address side.

[Excerpt from Iceland Post website, 2008]

It is important that the destination (after post code) be written in CAPITAL LETTERS.
