This post is here to clear the confusion on the Nigeria zip code once and for all, so do not be worried about errors in filling your zip codes online again.
ZIP (Zone Improvement Plan) codes are only used in the United States. The US does not regard postal codes from other countries as “ZIP” codes.
In all other countries, postal codes are used. However, ZIP codes in the US are used for the same purposes for which other countries use postal codes — for mailing purposes.
So, ZIP codes are to the US while postal codes are to other countries — including Nigeria.
The USPS (United States Postal Service) has codes for overseas countries, which are used when handling deliveries.
These codes are equivalent to the ZIP codes used within the US. The code for Nigeria is 00176-0000.
How to fill forms requesting for Nigeria ZIP code?
If you’re filling a form online, and you’re required to key in your ZIP code, simply put 110001 or 23401.
Some sites may reject both codes. In such case, try 00176. At least one of these codes should work.
Don’t make this Nigeria Zip code mistake
Never enter 234 as the ZIP code for Nigeria. This is Nigeria’s international phone dialing code. (Whenever you’re required to enter a ZIP code, simply use 110001, 23401, or 00176.).
You can also fill in the Nigeria Postal Codes to represent the Nigeria Zip code for your respective State.
