How to format an address for Nicaragua
Postcode type and position
7 digits on the line before the municipality name, with a dash between the 3rd and 4th digits and between the 6th and 7th digits.

However, in preparation for the future mechanization of sorting, a new postcode system has been designed and developed to allow the inclusion of coding for the department and municipality. So, for the above example, the full postcode, comprising 11 digits, will be XXYY–050–008–4, where XX is the department code and YY the locality code. Until automated sorting is introduced, however, only the last seven digits of the full code will be used.
