Iso 3166-2:bo

ISO 3166-2:BO is the entry for the codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Bolivia, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 9 departments.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is BO, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of the Plurinational State of Bolivia. The second part is a letter, currently used in vehicle registration plates.
