Iso 3166-2:kh

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

Currently for Cambodia, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 4 autonomous municipalities and 20 provinces.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is KH, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Cambodia. The second part is a number. The digits are currently used in postal codes, except for codes 1-9, for which one must include 0 before the number (1 becomes 01) to get the postal code from the ISO code:

  • 1–21: autonomous municipalities and provinces as of late 1980s
  • 22–24: autonomous municipalities and province created since the 1990s
