Data Location


The website of the postal service has details about the location of postal offices, but does not provide any details on postal codes and their correspondence geospatial locations. It is suspected that Egypt does not use an address system that links postal addresses to physical locations.

Reviewer comments

Egypt has a post code system as described https://www.upu.int/fileadmin/documentsFiles/activities/addressingUnit/egyEn.pdf. No official data has been identified.
