The only people who will ever ask you for a ZIP (Zone Improvement Plan) code are Americans. Every other person asks for your postal code. Americans just like to be different in almost everything, that’s all!

Aside from wanting to be different, America actually started out with the postal code system too.

They only wanted a more organized way of handling their mail delivery hence the introduction of the zip code in 1963 by the United States Post Office Department (USPOD).

This series of codes containing numerals, alphabets and/or punctuations are used for sorting out mailing addresses.

As I said earlier, Americans are about the only country that refers to it as Zip code, in Nigeria, we call it postal code, while some other countries call it Pincode, postcode and so on, they are all same thing.

So you need not be confused when asked in job application forms or any other form online to input your zip code, just write down any one of these Nigeria’s postal codes. Here are Nigeria international zip codes: 110001, 23401 or 00176.

Meanwhile, when it comes to filling out United States Postal Service (USPS) form, the code for Nigeria is 00176-0000. It’s a code America needs for handling deliveries in overseas countries like Nigeria.

Aside from these Nigerian Postal codes above, it’s imperative you know that every State, local government, town and sometimes, areas have their respective postal codes.
