Extending the time limit for residence and exit return visas for residents of countries where entry into Saudi Arabia has been suspended. The ban comes amid rising Kovid cases. Following this, the residence permit, iqama, re-entry visa and visitor visa of those who are unable to return to the country will be extended.
The extension was granted until January 31, 2022, at the behest of King Salman, the ruler of Saudi Arabia. The decision will benefit expatriates who are unable to come to Saudi Arabia due to travel restrictions.
The new announcement will also apply to the validity of visit visas issued by the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Currently, the exemption is available to those outside the country. Officials said the exemption would be available only to those nationals facing travel bans due to Kovid. The move is part of a drive to alleviate the financial hardship and other hardships people face due to Kovid.
Those who receive two doses of the vaccine from Saudi Arabia will not receive this benefit. No need to contact the Javasat office or any other place to get your visa renewed, officials said. Visa renewal procedures will be completed automatically. Procedures will be completed in collaboration with the National Information Center.
