ZIP Codes and Postal Codes 

ZIP codes are only available and used in the United States of America. In Nigeria, we don’t make use of ZIP codes but postal codes which differ from state to state. Wherever your location is in the country, if you are asked to give a ZIP code, you should give the postal code of the particular state you are in.

In Nigeria, Postal codes are numeric and comprise of six digits, the first digit is the regional code while the last three digits represent the delivery location which most times can be any of the following: a post office facility, an urban area or a rural area. In the allocation of postal codes, NIPOST, the Nigerian postal service has divided the country into nine regions. The regional codes make up the first digit of each region’s postal code. The first, second and third digits make the dispatch district for outgoing sorting.
