Postal codes consist of a block of 6 digits. This is the same code that was used before the independence of Tajikistan from the Soviet Union. All codes commence with 7. The first two digits indicate the republic and region, the next two the district and the final two the post office. If the fifth digit is ‘0’ then the postal code refers to a rural post office. In all other cases it is an urban post office.
