Banks have been asking customers to register with National Address System in the implementation of government Resolution No. (252) dated 24/07/1434 AH concerning the approval of the implementation of the (residence and work address) articles of the Civil Status Law, the Commercial Register Law, and the Residency Law.
Recently, I went to an insurance company office to renew my vehicle insurance and they also asked me to register with the National Address System.
The 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.
