Zip Code Of Nigeria and Postal Codes Of All States
Do you know what a zip code means? Do you know the difference between a zip code and a postal code? Do you know the correct zip code for your location?
Do you know we have different postal codes in the same state depending on your location in the state?
If you don’t, here’s a post on the zip code of Nigeria and the postal code of Nigerian states.
Have you been thinking 234 is a zip code for Nigeria? Have you tried to fill out a form online and entered +23401 as the postal code and were told it’s not correct?
If you have done any of the above before and you are confused about the correct zip code of your location, follow up with this article to know the correct and valid zip code of your location in any place in Nigeria.
“ZIP” stands for Zone Improvement Plan. The zip code is only used in the United States, while every other country uses the postal code.
Even though the zip code and postal code serve the same function, the zip code for Nigeria is handled by Nigeria Postal Service.
However, the United State Zip code is handled by the United State Postal Service (USPS). United State Postal Services have different codes for every other country that are used when handling postal services.
The USPC code for Nigeria is 00176000.
What Is The Difference Between Zip Code And Postal Code?
Zip Codes are Zone Improvement Plan only used in the United States while every other country uses postal codes instead.
Zip Codes is one of the things people don’t know much about.
For instance, as a Nigerian, if we are filling a form and we are asked to input our Zip code, what we input with the speed of light is +234.
This is incorrect as +234 is the International dialling code. For example, if anyone wants to call your line from abroad they will be required to add +234 before dialling your phone number.
So to cut the long story short, +234 is not Nigeria zip code. If you didn’t know this before, now you know in case someone else makes the same mistake in your presence, you now have the knowledge to correct them.
The General 5 digit zip code for Nigeria that has been working for us is 23401 or 110001 or 00176.
This is the normal zip code used for Nigeria. So whenever you are asked for a zip code while filling a form online, just input any of those numbers and you are good.
However, sometimes with the improvement of technology and for security reasons, the general zip code for Nigeria might not work because you will be required to enter the zip code for the exact location you are in.
Therein comes the postal codes for Nigerian states and their local governments.
The Nigeria Postal Service has handled this well and has created Postal codes for each area in Nigeria, therefore each State, Local Government Areas, City, have different postal codes.
