The Saudi Post National Address System is a unified address data storage through the Geographic Information System (GIS). It is important for the government to know the addresses of each and every citizen and residents living in the country.

The national address registration by Saudis and expats will also improve the law and order situation in Saudi Arabia as security agencies would be able to track any criminal very quickly.
