Portugal Postal Code



Portugal Postal Code


In 1520, King Manuel I established Portugal's first post office, dubbed "Correio de Servico Pblico" in English: Public Courier Service. For centuries, the Portuguese Royal House owned the mail. In 1821, we recognised the first home-delivery service, and in 1880, telegrams began to be transmitted as well. In 1969, the Portuguese post office was renamed CTT - Correios de Portugal e Telecomunicacoes. Cavaco Silva, the Prime Minister, turned the corporation into a joint stock company in 1992.


There are currently 903 post offices and several subsidiaries. They include the following services: CTT Correios (national and international postal service), CTT Expresso (national and international express service), Mailtec (information services), PostContacto (service letters without a postal address), Campos Envelopagem (marketing for large companies), PayShop (online payment service), telephone-IX (mobile operators), Postal (financial services), and Tourline Express (courier services in Spain).


Postal code for Portugal


Portuguese postal codes are composed of eight characters: four digits, a hyphen, and three more digits. The Portuguese postal code is referred to as the Codigo Postal. By 2014, the CAP had been reduced to four digits. Three figures were introduced this year to denote blocks of neighbourhood roads and small towns that are all served by the same distribution centre.


The Postal Code Structure


The first digit of the postal code specifies the area: one means that September is for the region of Lisbon, the Azores, and Madeira. The sequence numbering begins at the coast and proceeds north-east, then south. Santarem has a postcode of 2000, Coimbra has a postcode of 3000, Porto has a postcode of 4000, Villareal has a postcode of 5000, Castel Branco has a postcode of 6000, and Évora Faro has a postcode of 7000 and 8000. In general, the first four digits represent the distribution center's identifier.
