There is a query system database of Philippine Postal to check the local zip codes - Zipcodes do exist, but they have not been geocoded.

NAMRIA updated their Geoportal providing access to updated shapefiles up to the barangay level.

Reviewer comments

The geoportal contains geodata on the territory of the Philippines, however we were unable to locate geocoded postal code information. The PhlPost offers only a web service of identifying the postal code at city level.
