Data Location



Egyptian post services have notoriously worsened in the recent years. The link initially provided (https://egyptpost.org/mappost/map.html) doesn't seem to work. In addition, Egypt postal code is different from one city to another as it includes the governorate, the province, the type of service and a reference to the delivery post office in the area.

This website allows to search for a zip code, but not every such one in the country is available in its database: https://www.epcodes.com/
