On 2006-10-30, the British Virgin Islands adopted a system of postal codes. The codes assigned so far all have the form VG11n0, where n is a digit.
The Virgin Islands are divided between the Virgin Islands (U.S.) and the British Virgin Islands. The latter comprises islands north and east of The Narrows. The main islands are Anegada, Jost van Dyke, Tortola, and Virgin Gorda. Other islands in the British territory near the border with the U.S. territory are Little Tobago, Great and Little Thatch Island, Frenchman Cay, Pelican Island, and Norman Island.
The UN LOCODE page for Virgin Islands, British lists locations in the country, some of them with their latitudes and longitudes, some with their ISO 3166-2 codes for their subdivisions. This information can be put together to approximate the territorial extent of subdivisions.
