Shipments to Ireland require postcodes from 2 July

The Republic of Ireland has implemented a national postcode system, known as Eircode, which identifies the postal address of a specific property, rather than a cluster of addresses within an area like most other postcode systems.

Eircodes are unique 7-character codes consisting of letters and numbers. Each Eircode is made up of a 3-character routing key to identify the area and a 4-character unique identifier for each address, for example, A65 F4E2. More information on Eircodes can be found here.

As of 2 July 2023, the inclusion of Eircodes for shipments entering the Republic of Ireland will become mandatory on all DHL Express shipping solutions.

Please ensure that you're prepared to include the Eircode as part of the receiver’s address from July. Invalid or missing postcodes after this date may result in delays and potential address correction surcharges. This change will improve the speed and accuracy of deliveries to the Republic of Ireland and reduce the risk of failed first time deliveries due to bad address details or routing errors.
