International Address Formats Features & Benefits


International address formats

Besides obvious language differences, address formats differ dramatically from one country to another. Even where differences in formats seem trivial, the lack of one necessary component, or a different order can prevent your mail from reaching its intended destination.

Instantly international

Loqate allows users to search and validate addresses from over 250 countries and territories. Our international address verification enables us to capture global addresses within a single service; no separate licencing required.

Detect user location

Option to detect which country users are in, finding the nearest matching addresses first. If the address is outside the user's country, the rest of the world is automatically searched for matches. This allows you to create a single checkout form for all your customers in the world.

Doorstep delivery

Our up-to-date global database is full of deliverable domestic and international addresses for residential properties, including apartments, suites, rooms, and floor numbers. We offer rooftop-level accuracy in 120+ countries and can easily capture and verify an address down to the exact apartment or business unit.

Multi-language support

Full Unicode support allows users to search for and enter their address in their native language and character set.
