    As far as I know, Mauritius has not implemented Zip Codes yet. I did read an aritcle fairly recently about Mauritius Post wanting to introduce the system and I think they’ll start trials soon. I’ve not heard anything about that since then.

    It’d be a good idea to introduce postal codes in Mauritius. One, it standardizes stuff for us when we register online. Second, it makes all those “Royal roads” less ambiguous! :p

    A few years ago Mauritius Post talked about implementing postal codes but no information followed whether it was a real project. Anyway before that can be achieved municipalites need to put up street names where these are lacking.

    As for registration and use of zip/post code on websites, I find that using zeros or hyphen  ( 0 or – ) usually works for me.

    Yes sir, I remember that news too, and apparently, that laudable project is waiting on another long-term process of surveying all private properties for storage on a digital map archive (LAVIMS, it was named). That will take some years to complete, unfortunately…

    As for the Mauritian ZIP code, 013 always works for me.

    I use the airport code MRU or the Mauritius ISO country codes MU or MUS. If letters only is not allowed, I add a zero or two… I have noticed mail from abroad reaches here faster when using one of these codes.

    You mean, any combination of:
    MUR
    MU
    MUS
    MUR0

    MU0

    MUS0
    MUR00

    MU00

    MUS00

    should work?
    Ok, lemme try…

  • Astrid

    Akash, in most cases just the two or three letters; MRU or MUS or MU. It has happened I had to add some zeros too, but can’t remember which one…

    Well, on my website for instance, my customers mostly put 230, only few put 742CU001.
    Unfortunately on most systems zip/postal code entry is compulsory.
    However, when we ship our items via HK Post or China Post, or even via DHL, we just give them the country name.
    Up to now, all our products have successfully been delivered to our customers worldwide and has been no lost because of no zip/postal code.

    If ’742CU001′ is not our zip code , as you said MRU has no zipcode, then what does this code mean actually? I’m curious..

    “Postal codes are not used in Mauritius. But The use of postcodes has
    been introduced on a trial basis in a single delivery office.This trial,
    limited for the moment to the Curepipe office, has not yet been
    extended to other delivery offices owing to numerous difficulties, such
    as the lack of street names,house numbers, etc.

    eg:

    7 4 2 C U 0 0 1

    The first digit represents the district,the second digit
    represents the municipality,the third digit represents the quarter,the C
    U represents the delivery post office,the last three digits represent
    the sector.”

    Update to this article. The Post Office has implemented Postal Codes in 3 villages in Mauritius since a few months already (on a trial basis): Lallmatie, Brisée Verdière and Bon Accueil (these three combine 25,000 people). I have seen 42601 and 42602 for Lallmatie. The first digit is the district (4=Flacq), the next 2 are the locality code (I guess 26=Lallmatie) and the last 2 are the area code within that locality.

    But my bank and some local authorities seem to ignore the Postal Code… Why aren’t they aware of it?

    But it doesnt always work when buying online, so when that happens, use 00 which is the US Zip code that officially represents “Outside US.”
