Iso 3166-2:pa

Main article: ISO 3166-2

ISO 3166-2:PA is the entry for Panama in ISO 3166-2, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which defines codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Panama, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 9 provinces and 3 indigenous regions.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is PA, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Panama. The second part is either of the following:

  • one digit (1–9): provinces
  • two letters: indigenous regions

The codes for the provinces are assigned in traditional Spanish alphabetical order.

Current codes

Subdivision names are listed as in the ISO 3166-2 standard published by the ISO 3166 Maintenance Agency (ISO 3166/MA).
