Seeking full list of ISO ALPHA-2 and ISO ALPHA-3 country codes?
I'm searching for a full list of countries with their country codes.
Like on this page (need full and valid):
The Perl Locale::Codes distribution is very comprehensive and actively maintained.
Where can I find the ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 country code for free download on the ISO 3166/MA Website?
Nowhere. The alpha-3 code is not made available free of charge. You can buy the International Standard ISO 3166-1 from our ISO Store. It contains the three-letter code.
A bit strange in the internet era, but luckily, there is a Wikipedia article with the full list and a UN official document that covers the subject, with country codes.
There's a list at the CIA site with FIPS 10, ISO 3166 Alpha2, ISO 3166 Alpha3, STANAG and Internet TLD (e.g, .il or .uk).
- Alpha-2 codes: ISO 3166-1 official site
- Alpha-3 codes: Wikipedia or UN
- Both codes, plus STANAG and Internet TLD: CIA site
Note that these list contain non-country entities like Antartica.
This answer is now 100% useful as the first link, the official site, now also provides the alpha-3 code free of charge in a nicely formatted copypastable table.
@DirkvanBergen That's a nice move, but their table is far from being nicely formatted. 10-page pagination, no CSV link.
