Main article: ISO 3166-2

ISO 3166-2:TJ is the entry for Tajikistan 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 Tajikistan, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 1 autonomous region and 2 regions. The Districts of Republican Subordination, formerly named Karategin Province, had its code deleted in Newsletter I-4.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is TJ, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Tajikistan. The second part is two letters.

Current codes[edit]

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

ISO 639-1 codes are used to represent subdivision names in the following administrative languages:

Code Subdivision name Subdivision category
TJ-GB Gorno-Badakhshan (ru), Kŭhistoni Badakhshon (tg) autonomous region
TJ-KT Khatlon region
TJ-SU Sughd region

Remark: The deletion of the region Karategin leaves one part of the country, including the capital Dushanbe and a number of rayons, without name and without code in ISO 3166-2. The ISO 3166/MA will contact the authorities in Tajikistan to find a solution for this blank.
