As the business evolved worldwide, mailing increased and consequently to track a mail becomes a cumbersome task. Hence a better system was in demand to deal with this situation.

How to Read a Zip Code?

It is advisable to know about the numbering system so that you can avoid any mistake while sending a parcel. This postal code system has made the mailing life much easier and quicker.

Let see a what information a Postal code have, but before you need to know there are two types of deliveries in Saudi Arabia

  • Home Delivery
  • Post Office Delivery

Coding Method for Home Delivery

Let say we have a Postal code of Turaif that is 75311;

Here, the First digit represents the Major Area (you can see in the above picture it is in Northern, Jawf Area), then next is for Sector, then Branch, Section, and Block.

or you can define these like;

  • The first digit broader area, which ranges from 1 t0 8
  • The two following digits are the code for the main post office in that region.
  • The last two digits are for small post offices/postal zones in that particular city or surroundings.

Coding Method for PO Box Delivery

It is also 5 digits here in Saudi Arabia but here if we want to see for PO Box then first two digits are for postal zone & other three for delivery point.

Why 9 Digits Postal Code?

This system was further improved with the increase in population around the world. Now four more digits were added with a hyphen. The purpose of this system was to make it more precise.

For example; Postal code of my location in Turaif, Saudi Arabia is 75311 – 8538. Here these last four digits are making it more precise for a delivery guy to come to my building.

A Saudi Postal Address also called a national Address consist of the following information;

4751 Abu Bakr As Siddiq – Al Yarmuk
Turaif 75311 – 8538
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

This makes the postal services much easier in the kingdom now as it contains everything that is required like;

  • A Building Number -Street – District
  • A Unit Number “in multi-units buildings”
  • The City Name Zipcode – Extended zip code
  • Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Wrap Up

Actually when I arrived in Turaif and it was really hard for me to find my postal code. That’s why you are reading this and I hope it will help you any other days if not today.

Also, keep in mind that a city may have more than postal/zip codes. It depends how big the city is and how many post office branches are there to facilitate.
