If you want to send a letter or a parcel to Mombasa by mail, you will need to specify the Mombasa postal code. Postcodes or ZIP codes, as it is popular in the US, mean the same thing – they are specific sets of numbers sometimes combined with letters that identify a postal delivery area.

Mombasa has a lot of postal codes, and they differ not only from one part of the city to another but also inside the parts of the larger coastal region in Kenya, encompassing the Kwale, Kilifi, and Malindi areas.

Therefore, when you are in Mombasa, a valid postcode will depend on where you live, as the order of the five-digit numbers can tell where an individual is, plus the location where their mail is sorted before delivery.

Predominantly, an example Mombasa postal code or ZIP code will start with 80- followed by other detailed numbers. See 80100 for Mvita, 80101 for Bamburi, 80110 for Likoni, 80118 for Nyali beach area, and so on.
