Hi there,

I live in Kuwait and filed for my husband from here. Kuwait has awful, nearly non-existent post, but I still used my Kuwait address, because, in most cases, it seems the USCIS is 'auto-expediting' petitions from people who reside abroad. So if you want to your petition approved fast, use your Saudi address. If you are not ready to move to the USA for another 9-12 months, then you can use a USA address.

I'd suggest reading through this topic to get some more info about this issue:

Best wishes.
