Main article: ISO 3166-2

ISO 3166-2:GN is the entry for Guinea 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 Guinea, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for two levels of subdivisions:

The special zone Conakry is the capital of the country and has special status equal to the governorates.

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

  • one letter: governorates and special zone
  • two letters: prefectures

Current codes[edit]

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