Postal Branches

The postal branch number is represented by the third digit of the postal code

Each postal sector is divided into many postal branches, with maximum of 8 branches for each sector. Number (1) is excluded for governmental and exceptional services usage. Upon dividing branches, it was taken into consideration that their borders should be highways or main roads as much as possible. There are 3 distinct strategies when dividing Postal branches, they are as follows:

These are cities which do not overlook a water resource, such as: Riyadh, Buraidah, Ha'il, etc.

An axis point is determined for each sector; through this point postal branches are numbered.

Branches to the west of the axis point are assigned odd numbers (3,5,7,9), in an ascending order with regard to the axis. This means that as we move towards the west of the branch, the odd number increases.

Branches to the east of the axis point are assigned even numbers (2,4,6,8) in an ascending order with regard to the axis. This means that as we move towards the east of the branch, the even number increases.

Branches in the 2nd Sectors of Riyadh Region

These are cities which have coasts running parallel to the sea, such as: Jeddah and Yanbu

An axis point is determined for each sector, through this point postal branches are numbered.

Division is based on the nature of the city's location on the coast, and direction of its urbanization. Branch numbers start from the lowest and increase as we move towards the north.

These are cities which have coasts not running parallel to the sea, such as: Dammam, Khobar

An axis point is determined for each sector, through this point postal branches are numbered.

Division is based on the nature of the city's location on the coast, and the direction of its urbanization. Branches which are nearer to the coast are assigned even numbers, while branches which are further from the coast are assigned odd numbers.
