Exit Re-Entry Fee Increased SR 600 ?

Today, 2nd October, 2016, the which corresponding to 1st Muharram, 1438; the government has announced that the fees will be increasing for various visa services.
It has been confirmed that the Family Visa visa fee has increased to SR 2000 and it is charged at the time of stamping of visa at Saudi Embassy in your home country.
However, a big surprise has been the Exit Re-entry fee. When we logged on to Bank website and tried to make payment for exit re-entry visa, it is showing SR 600 which is a shock. (see screen snap shot below which we got from our bank)
exit-reentry-fee-sr-600
As per the announcement by the government, the exit re-entry fee will be SR 200 for first two months and it will additional SR 100 for each additional month. However, this fee of SR 600 has been a big shock for many expatriates. A person with a family of four will have to spend SR 2,400 in visa fees just for going on vacation; tickets excluded.
Many are hoping that as this is the first day of implementation, it a error which will be corrected soon.
Until there is official announcement is there, we have to keep our finger crossed and see.

    SR200 for a single trip for two months as maximum, and SR100 for each additional month, within the limits of the duration of the residence permit’s validity.

      • Mudasir Ashraf

        Fee isnt coming from bank its directly from the ministry itself, bank has no role in it. Only possibility is a technical bug which may be rectified in due time else ministry may announce it as 600.. Bank has nothing to do with it

  • Basit Mursaleen

    How can a lobor category person bring his family on visit visa? because now its too expensive !!

    • Why would a labourer want to bring his family over in the KINGDOM? Even in india we leave our families in the village to go and work in the city if we cant handle the life costs in the big cities.

      • Ayyoobi

        Dear Brother, May be this persons IQAMA Profession only Labor. Even though a person bringing his family for UMRA purpose, can we tell them “you are labor and you and you are not deserve to bring your family in kingdom”. We should consider the feeling of others.
        May Allah bless you
