Turkish Postal Codes and the Post Office

Information about the postal system in Turkey, including sending and receiving letters, parcels and other mail, and how to find a Turkish postcode...

Postal services in Turkey are provided by PTT. Its website has information on mailing letters and parcels and banking with PTT.

Postal/ZIP Codes

Turkish postcodes are made up of five-digits, with the first two digits corresponding to the province and the final three digits indicating the district within the province. The first two digits are the same as the vehicle licence plate codes of each province.

Turkish Addresses

Addresses in Turkey are written in the bottom right hand corner of the envelope in the following format:

  • Full name and title of addressee (optionally write the surname in capital letters)
    Company name (if applicable)
    Name of the neighbourhood
    Street name, building name or/and street number, flat number
    Postal code, DISTRICT, CITY, COUNTRY

For Example:

  • Nihal AGUN
    Mebusevleri Mah.
    Önder Cad. Ankara Ap. 11/8 
    06580 ÇANKAYA / ANKARA / TÜRKİYE
