Data Location


In Algeria, the postal codes of province capitals are composed of the province code as in ISO 3166-2:DZ and three zeros, for example: 16000 for Algiers, while the postal codes of other cities, towns, and villages in the province are the provincial code followed by three numerals. [Wikipedia]

The Algerian Post website (https://www.poste.dz/) has a link to search for postal codes "Rechercher Un Code Postal", but it is not working. The link is removed from most of the pages now, though, we found it on this page (https://www.poste.dz/Actualite/actua.php#) which seems to be an older version of the site that was not updated.
