The Belgian mail service, Bpost, has an API to

Create an \Spatie\BpostAddressWebservice\Address, and validate it.

$addressValidator = AddressValidator::create();

$address = Address::create([
    'streetName' => 'Samberstraat',
    'streetNumber' => '69',
    'boxNumber' => 'D',
    'postalCode' => '2060',
    'municipalityName' => 'Antwaarpe',
    'country' => 'BELGIE',

$validatedAddress = $addressValidator->validate($address);

The validated address can contain errors and warnings. If it has any error or warning, we say that it has issues.

$validatedAddress->hasErrors(); // false

$validatedAddress->hasWarnings(); // true

$validatedAddress->hasIssues(); // true

An array of errors, warnings, or issues can be retrieved from the validated address.

$validatedAddress->errors(); // []

$validatedAddress->warnings()[0]->attribute(); // 'municipalityName'
$validatedAddress->warnings()[0]->message(); // 'anomaly_in_field'

$validatedAddress->issues()[0]->attribute(); // 'municipalityName'
$validatedAddress->issues()[0]->message(); // 'anomaly_in_field'

A validated addresses' attributes can be retrieved.

$validatedAddress->streetName; // 'Samberstraat'
$validatedAddress->streetNumber; // '69'
$validatedAddress->boxNumber; // ''
$validatedAddress->postalCode; // '2060'
$validatedAddress->municipalityName; // 'Antwaarpe'
$validatedAddress->country; // 'BELGIE'

// [
//     'streetName' => 'SAMBERSTRAAT',
//     'streetNumber' => '69',
//     'boxNumber' => '',
//     'postalCode' => '2060',
//     'municipalityName' => 'ANTWERPEN',
//     'country' => 'BELGIE',
// ]

You can also validate up to 100 addresses at a time. An array of ValidatedAddresses will be returned.

$addressValidator = AddressValidator::create();

$validatedAddresses = $addressValidator->validateMany([
        'streetName' => 'Samberstraat',
        'streetNumber' => '69',
        'boxNumber' => 'D',
        'postalCode' => '2060',
        'municipalityName' => 'Antwaarpe',
        'country' => 'BELGIE',
    // ...
