Peru

Postal codes in Peru were updated in February 2011 to employ a five-digit format.

The first three digits of the postal code identify the postal zone, which corresponds to a province. For instance, postal zone 010 corresponds to the Chachapoyas province. The remaining two digits identify a geographical part of the province. There is no relation between the last two digits and administrative boundaries.
