Postal codes in the Netherlands


2-digit postcode areas Netherlands(defined through the first two postcode digits)

Postal codes in the Netherlands, known as postcodes, are alphanumeric, consisting of four digits followed by two uppercase letters. The letters 'F', 'I', 'O', 'Q', 'U' and 'Y' were originally not used for technical reasons, but as almost all existing combinations are now used these letters were allowed for new locations starting 2005. The letter combinations 'SS', 'SD' and 'SA' are not used for historical reasons.

The first two digits indicate a city and a region, the second two digits and the two letters indicate a range of house numbers, usually on the same street. Consequently, a postal address is uniquely defined by the postal code and the house number. On average, a Dutch postal code comprises eight single addresses.

When addressing mail to the Netherlands from other countries, the prefix NL may be added to the postcode, e.g.:[citation needed]

Stadsregio Amsterdam
Postbus 626
NL-1000 AP Amsterdam

List of postal codes in the Netherlands Caribbean Netherlands


The three BES-islands, who became part of the country in 2010, currently do not have postal codes yet. Just the address, town and island is sufficient for sending post to either of these islands (with "Caribbean Netherlands" as country when sent from abroad). The Dutch government has plans for introducing postal codes on these islands similar to the postal codes used in the European Netherlands.
