The British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar has introduced the postcode GX11 1AA.[1][2] This is pending the introduction of a postcode system similar to that used in the United Kingdom.[3] This has been under consideration by the Government of Gibraltar since 2006.[4] The postcode is not required for local mail.

Postal districts[edit]

The Royal Gibraltar Post Office has divided the territory into fourteen postal zones known as 'walks' or 'districts', each with a number or letter as well as a name,[5] but these are for internal use and not encountered in addresses. They are separate from the Major Residential Areas, used for statistical purposes.[6]
