The National Address Registration is a key element in the e-governance system in Saudi Arabia. It helps government agencies to have accurate information about their citizens, residents, and visitors for better services delivery.
In addition, it helps individuals by providing them with an official and unique national address, which can be used to receive mail and parcels from anywhere in the world. Saudi National Address Registration can be done through SPL and Mowasalat company.
National Address is simply a number of your residence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This address number is an official document from the Ministry of Interior and will include your name, a family number, your father’s name, and his father’s name.
National address registration is one of the ways to obtain a new taghrib (National ID card) in Saudi Arabia. The other way is to visit the national branch of Mowasalat company which can provide a taghrib within a total time of three days, while if you choose to get your new national ID card through making a national address (i.e., obtaining a new national ID card via postal service), then you need to be patient until you receive it at your home which will take almost 7 weeks. This article will provide information about how to make a national address via postal service, and how that process works step by step.
