New rules for sending SMS to Saudi Arabia

Dear users,

We are writing to inform you about rule changes regarding the sending of SMS messages to Saudi Arabia. When sending SMS to this country, the Sender ID (“from” name) should be submitted for approval in advance.

Only alpha names are allowed (letters or letters + numbers). Numeric names (only numbers) are prohibited.

All Sender IDs  need to be pre-approved by mobile operators. The Sender ID reviews are free and usually take 1-2 days to complete.

We advise you to add your Sender ID today at

SMS messages sent using unregistered or numeric IDs will not be delivered.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with our technical support team.
