What is Bogota, Colombia’s zip code?

Bogotá, Colombia, has zip codes that go from 110111 to 112041. Each zip code is for a different district with different borders. The first two numbers represent the national department. Bogotá’s specific postal code is 11, and the last four numbers are areas set by the local post. Even though Colombia has a system for zip codes, they are not always used.

There are almost a million different postal codes in Colombia’s 35 departments. Up to 100 different postal codes are given to each major city, and hundreds of thousands of postal codes are given to rural areas based on their location. Like US ZIP codes, Colombian postal codes have six digits.

The first two digits represent one of the country’s 35 departments, the second two digits represent one of up to 89 postal zones per department, and the third two digits represent up to 100 postal districts per zone.

Even though Colombia has postal codes and a centralised mail system, these services are not often used because of corruption and other problems. Postal services are more active in bigger towns like Bogata, but even these services can be sporadic and unreliable.

Contacting the local authorities is the fastest and most reliable way to find out what the postal code is for a specific mailing address or city. Postal code manifests can be found in print and online from the National Postal Service of Colombia and other organisations.

Bogotá is a city in Colombia where people speak Spanish. It was founded in the year 1538. The city was made when the Spanish took over a small village called Teusaquillo, which was made up of people from Mesoamerica. Tribes fought against the first settlers, but the city stayed. In the end, Bogotá grew to be the capital of Colombia, with about eight million people living there.
