Argentina Mailing Address Formats and Other International Mailing Information

for mailing letters or packages to or from Argentina,
such as postal rates to (or from) Argentina, finding Argentinian/Argentine addresses, Argentinian/Argentine postcodes, etc.

When mailing an envelope or postcard, leave at least the bottom 16 millimeters (5/8 inch) blank on both front and back. (The postal service's reading and sorting machines might need this space to print bar codes on your mail.)

Google ad(s) are sometimes shown above.

Postcode Search (find Argentina postcodes / postal codes = 'Argentinian/Argentine zip codes')

Postal Code Lookup Form (Requires Javascript; in Spanish)
Works fairly well, but fails on some heavily abbreviated addresses. For help expanding an abbreviated address, see address correction/completion and address finding resources listed on this page.

Address Validation, Verification, and/or Correction

Completing/repairing a partial address
Interactive map of Buenos Aires (may require Javascript; in Spanish)
Surprisingly useful for helping fix over-abbreviated, incomplete or slightly broken addresses in Buenos Aires.

You can find an address by using a search form in the lower left corner (as of 2010 June) labeled "LOCALIZADOR DE DIRECCIONES". This can be useful for getting more complete forms of abbreviated street names, and for figuring out a location within the large city. Also useful for getting an address into the more complete form sometimes required by the Argentine Post's (Correo Argentino's) postcode lookup form.

You can check that an address at least exists with Correo Argentino's Postal Code Lookup Form (Requires Javascript; in Spanish)
  What Postcode Lookup Form Field Names Mean

  Localidad:          neighborhood/quarter
  Nombre de la Calle: street name
  Número:             number
  Búsqueda:           search
