ISO 3166-2:VE

ISO 3166-2:VE is the entry in ISO 3166-2, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which defines codes for the names of the principal subdivisions of Venezuela (whose ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code is VE).

Currently 1 federal dependency, 1 federal district, and 23 states are assigned codes. Each code starts with VE-, followed by a letter, whose assignment is based on the following:

A: federal district

B–V (except Q): states as of late 1980s, in alphabetical order

W: federal dependency

X: state created in 1998

Y, Z: former federal territories given state status in early 1990s
