Emails to the Government and ministries
Comments, tips or questions about the Government’s policies may be sent to the ministers or ministries via the senior registry clerk of the relevant ministry.
How electronic mail is dealt with
Incoming emails to ministers are received and registered by the senior registry clerk at the relevant ministry.
Ministers receive a large number of emails every day containing comments and questions. These are dealt with in various ways depending on the issues raised, the ministry they were sent to and the wishes of the individual minister. All emails are read, but due to time constraints, it is impossible to answer all of them or, for example, to assist students with research or fact-finding.
In principle, all items of mail to the Government and Government Offices are official documents. This means that the general public and the media have the right to request access to their contents.
Email addresses at the Government Offices
All Government Offices email addresses are based on the following format: email@example.com
All staff members can also receive emails through the English email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
For the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and missions abroad, email@example.com is the primary address.
The email address for each ministry's senior registry clerk uses the following format: firstname.lastname@example.org
