South Africa Postal Code
Postal codes were first used in South Africa on the 8th of October 1973, in conjunction with the introduction of automated sorting technology.
Postal codes in South Africa are made up of four digits. Either a physical address or a Post Office Box can be used to receive mail deliveries. This is especially true in rural locations where there is no street delivery accessible.
Aside from that, many major corporations may employ Private Bag addresses, with mail delivered to the bearer by a third-party postal contractor.


In the case of cities and big towns, the final two digits of the postcode, on the other hand, indicate the manner of delivery. In the case of addresses in Port Elizabeth, the numbers "01" and "00" denote a street address and a PO Box or Private Bag address, respectively.
as an illustration, consider the following format.


300 Kempston Road
Port Elizabeth
6001
