BFPO postcodes from Royal Mail

BFPO is used to provide goods and services to British forces personnel serving overseas. BFPO postcodes help service personnel to shop online and maintain contact with home, no matter where in the world they may be.

BFPO contains details of over 700 BFPO postcodes. BFPO postcodes work in exactly the same way as the rest of the Postcode Address File (PAF), to enable businesses to trade easily with service personnel.

How BFPO postcodes can help your organisation

  • Deliver to service personnel
    Businesses can enjoy the commercial benefits of trading with service personnel.
  • Address verification
    Many forces personnel don't have a permanent UK address. Accepting BFPO postcodes allows forces personnel and their families to access services or buy things online.
  • Works alongside PAF
    BFPO can be used with all PAF-based solutions, and functions in exactly the same way as PAF data.
