Singapore Postal Code Complete Guide

What is Postal Code?

The 6-digit Singapore SingPost postal code was introduced on 1 September 1995 that assigns a unique postal code to every house and building in Singapore for the convenience of the mail sorting system.

How to Interpret Singapore Postal Code

The 6-digit postal code in Singapore is made up of the sector code and the delivery point. The sector code is represented by the first two numbers of the postal code. The remaining four numbers define the delivery point within the sector.

Postal Code Format Examples

For Housing & Development Board (HDB) residential blocks, the block number is included in the postal code, e.g:

Blk 335 Smith Street
Singapore 050335

HDB residential blocks with the same number in the same postal sector are differentiated by their postal codes as follows:

Blk 110 Simei Street 1
Singapore 520110

The postal codes for private residential, commercial and industrial houses and buildings are assigned based on the alphabetical sequence of the street names in each sector. This means that the codes for a particular postal sector have been assigned first to houses and buildings located along street names beginning with ‘A, followed by ‘B’ and so on. The postal codes for such properties do not contain the corresponding house or building numbers included in the postal code. HDB industrial and commercial blocks also use this system.
