ISO 3166-2:YE is the entry for Yemen 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 Yemen, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 1 municipality and 20 governorates. The municipality Sana'a 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 YE, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Yemen. 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).
