    Dear,
    My family (wife + two boys) are on saudi iqama and currently in pakistan on an exit/reentry visa. They have renewed their passports in pakistan. Kindly advise as follows:
    1. Can they transfer information from old passports to new passports from saudi embassy in pakistan?
    2. If answer to above question is no then how can they travel to saudi, old passport or new passport, considering new passport has no visa?

    Thanks.

      Your family must show both passports(old & new) at pakistan air port and they will allow them to travel. there will be no problem at saudi arabia airport. after some time you will go to Jawazat and transfer the information from old to new passport
