Only the addressee whose name is given on the postal item can collect, after presenting his/her valid ID, the item from the post office.

How many days are postal items stored at the post office if I do not collect them at once?

After receipt of the notice K 11, it is recommended to arrive at the post office to collect the item as soon as possible - postal items weighting above 500g are stored free of charge for a period of 15 calendar days from delivery of the notice K 11. After the expiry of this term, a charge of EUR 0.87 per day is applied. When collecting the item you will have to pay the charge for storing your item (postal items are stored for a period given in the notice K 11). In the event the addressee does not collect the item within the indicated period, the item is returned to the sender.

Can I rent a post office box at a post office? How much does it cost?

What does happen with incorrectly addressed postal items?

When the item is found to be “no one’s”, i.e. neither the addressee nor the sender collects it, Lithuania Post follows The Rules on Handing Over, Accounting, Storage, Realization, Return and Attribution to Waste of No One’s, Confiscated, Inherited by the State, Handed Over to the State’s Income Property. In such cases undelivered postal items are return to the origin post office for storage for a period of 1 month. After expiry of this term, items are attributed to undelivered postal items and are sent for storage to Lithuania Post’s repository.

I often receive postal items addressed to another person. What should I do?

If you receive postal items addressed to another person, just inform us and we will try to find a solution to this problem. Maybe those letters are sent to a person who used to live at your address. According to the Postal Law of the Republic of Lithuania, postal items must be delivered to the indicated address, not the indicated person.

In such a case, return the item to us:
