Street numbers and house numbers in Saudi Arabia are not allocated in the country generally, so it caused many difficulties in posting any object from town to town, business to home and vice versa. Then in order to eradicate any sort of confusion and making the system smooth, the postal code system was introduced and established. Firstly the system was originated in European Countries and on July 1, 1963, by the United States Postal Service.the postal code consists of two parts. The first part contains 5 digits further categorized by a hyphen with the addition of 4 more digits for more clarification and preciseness of the Saudi National Address, making a total of 9 digits.
Later on, it broke through new grounds and evolved in every country, including Saudi Arabia.Saudi Arabia uses the five digit pin code as first set and 4 digit pin code as second set in which the first 5 digits indicates the city in the country and the last 4 digits indicates the delivery destination.Designing a postcode in Saudi Arabia is based on the segregation of 8 regions in the country as per the division of administration where every city or state is categorized with a specific numeric, coming at the beginning of a postcode.
