This package is a Laravel wrapper of Nationaal Georegister provider for Geocoder PHP, which can be used to lookup a postal code to return the corresponding street and city.

The publicly available PDOK Locatieserver v3 (Dutch) is utilized to provide the necessary geodata.


Use composer to install this package:

$ composer require chabter/laravel-dutch-postalcode-lookup


Perform a lookup by postal code:


Or perform a lookup by a postal code and house number combination:

PostalCodeLookupService::lookup('1012JS', 1);

The lookup method also supports using house number extensions as follows:

PostalCodeLookupService::lookup('1012JS', '5B');


The lookup method returns a Chabter\PostalCodeLookup\Models\Address model on success, for example:

$address->getPostalCode() => '1012JS';
$address->getHouseNumber() => 1; // or string including housenumber extension
$address->getStreet() => 'Dam';
$address->getCity() => 'Amsterdam';
