A helper to list countries & states in English in Laravel 6.0+. Laravel 5.1-5.8 supported in version 2 (see below).

What's Changed in 3.0

  • PHP 7.2+ required
  • Dropped Laravel 5.x support


Require this package with composer:

composer require dougsisk/laravel-country-state

Still using Laravel 5.1-5.8? Use version 2:

composer require "dougsisk/laravel-country-state:^2.0"

After updating composer, add the CountryStateServiceProvider to the providers array in config/app.php (not required for Laravel 5.5+ thanks to package auto-discovery)


Copy the package config to your local config with the publish command:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="DougSisk\CountryState\CountryStateServiceProvider" --tag="config"


By default, the helper will preload states for the US. You can change this via the preloadCountryStates config option:

'preloadCountryStates' => ['CA', 'MX', 'US']

If you don't want every country to be returned, you can define countries using the limitCountries config option:

'limitCountries' => ['CA', 'MX', 'US']


You may now use the CountryState facade to access countries and states.

Remember to import the namespace to access the facade in your files:

use CountryState;

To get an array of countries:

$countries = CountryState::getCountries();

The array keys will be the countries' 2 letter ISO code and the values will be the countries' English name. You may also set the 3 letter ISO key as the argument to receive translations of the countries' names (limited support).

To get an array of a country's states, simply pass the country's 2 letter ISO code:

$states = CountryState::getStates('US');

The array keys will be the states' 2 letter ISO code and the values will be the states' English name.
