ISO 3166-2:SA

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ISO 3166-2:SA is the entry for Saudi Arabia in ISO 3166-2, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which defines codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Saudi Arabia, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 13 regions.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is SA, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Saudi Arabia. The second part is two digits (01–14 except 13).
