My address plate installation qatar updated

If you look around Qatar, buildings, residential homes, commercial spots, and the like have blue plates on their external walls. This blue plate indicates the address of these infrastructures. The blue plate comprises the building or house number, street number, and zone number in English and Arabic.

The blue plate or address plate is your address and is the basis for many things, from emergency concerns to even deliveries. However, there are cases where the blue plate is not yet installed in some buildings or houses. If that's the situation you're in, don't fret! It's relatively easy to get it installed.

Follow this guide by the (ILQ) team to know the step-by-step process for getting it done.
