Change in opening hours in service center

1. Nov 2021

In recent months and years, Hafnarfjörður municipality has taken steps towards smarter services, to improve quality and efficiency. New smart solutions have been well received by residents and other service users and new ways of communicating and sharing information have been successful. Digital changes and the development of opening hours in society in general have, among other things, had a direct effect on residents' visits to the service center at Strandgata 6.

From 1 November 2021, the customer service will close at 14 on Fridays

As of November 1, 2021, there will be a change in the opening hours of Hafnarfjörður's customer service on Fridays. It will be open from 8-14. All other working days are still open from 8-16. You can still send suggestions through the suggestion portal around the clock, send an e-mail to: and most of the applications for services are now electronic and can be found on My pages . Documents on paper can be turned in at any time of the day or night in the mailbox of the Town Hall at Strandgata 6. The emergency center of the service center is open outside opening hours as before.


The decision on the change of opening hours

The decision on changing opening hours is made after reviewing statistics on visits, telephone calls, online chats and utilization of the service in parallel with developments and changes in opening hours at other municipalities and public institutions. This change is in line with other changes and, among other things, fewer working hours in a week and increases the possibilities for self-service. Hafnarfjarðarbær's service center was opened on 1 September 2003 and the staff of Hafnarfjarðarbær's service center and Hafnarfjörður have strived to give excellent service to the residents. The municipality's smart steps aim to utilize technology to improve the quality and efficiency of the service and establish even better communication with the residents through routes and at times that best suit the needs of the community at any given time.
