Ministries

Two new Government ministries commenced operation on 1 May 2017 — the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Transport and Local Government — which took the place of the Ministry of the Interior. The change is based on the decision of the Government and Parliamentary approval of a parliamentary resolution on the division of the Ministry of the Interior.  

Both ministries are located at Sölvhólsgata 7, where the Ministry of the interior has had its offices. The ministries  operate a joint website.

Each of the two ministries employs nearly 50 members of staff, including several who will handle projects for both ministries. 

Opening hours are 08.30-16.00 daily, Monday through Friday.
