ISO 3166-2:NE is the entry for Niger 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 Niger, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 1 urban community and 7 departments. The urban community Niamey is the capital of the country and has special status equal to the departments. The departments changed their status to regions in 2006.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is NE, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Niger. The second part is a digit:

  • 1–7: departments
  • 8: urban community
