Automatic extension of re-entry visas of expatriates abroad completed – Saudi Jawazat

The automatic extension of exit and re-entry visas of expatriates outside the kingdom have been completed for the period of three months as announced by the Directorate General of Passports (Jawazat).

The beneficiaries are those expatriates whose exit and re-entry visa validity expired following the suspension of international flights.

The ministry of interior also announced through the Absher app that the exit and re-entry visa service will also be available for family members of expatriates and domestic workers on the condition that the person shall be outside the Kingdom and the validity of his/her residency permit (iqama) covers the extension period. The other condition is that the expiry of exit and re-entry visas should not exceed more than 60 days.

The procedures for the extension of exit and re-entry visas include payment of visa fees through a bank account with SR 100 for a single visa and SR 200 for multiple visas for each month of extension.

The concerned person should log-in the Absher portal for the option to extend the visa.
