VISIT VISA PROCESS FOR FAMILY MEMBERS – SAUDI ARABIA

There are a lot of expatriates in the kingdom who are currently without their families, but would like to bring them on a visit visa. This post is meant to guide those.

The most important factor which decides whether you can bring your family or not, is the profession mentioned in your Iqama or residence permit. Note that this may not be your actual job title. For example, it is quite common for an engineer to be hired on a labour visa on which there is no chance of bringing in family for visit or permanent residency. In such a case, the concerned person needs to get his profession changed on his Iqama before applying for the family visa. For all government transactions, it is the profession mentioned in your Iqama which matters, not your job title!

Coming back to the visit visa procedure for bringing your family into the kingdom.Before you proceed to fill in the online form, you must have with you the following documents ready:
1. Your original Iqama (keep a copy with yourself for records)
2. Your passport photocopy
3. Salary Certificate in Arabic from your Employer
4. Passport copy of the visiting member (parents / children / in-laws)

 Note: A separate application has to be made for each individual family member whom you are going to sponsor.

For sponsoring your in-laws, the following additional documents are required:
• Certificate from a hospital in case your wife needs support for any reason, e.g., pregnancy
• Wife’s passport copy – this is to prove the relationship between your wife and her father / mother
• Copy of your Marriage Certificate, translated in Arabic and attested by the Saudi consulate / embassy in your home country

Once you are ready with all of the above, proceed to the next step as below. Have a person who can read Arabic next to you.

1. Then click on this link: https://visa.mofa.gov.sa/ and choose the language as ‘English’ as shown in the image below:

2. Once the page displays in English, follow the steps as shown in the image below:

3. The next page will display the Terms & Conditions in Arabic. Unfortunately there is no English version available for this application yet as seen below. You may go ahead and click on the button marked in the image below to proceed:

However, it can be translated through Google Chrome by clicking on the small icon on the top right in the address bar of the page as shown in the images below:

4. On the next page, as seen in the image below, the applicant will need to enter the Iqama no. and its expiry date and the Visa No. which can be found on the Visa stamp on your passport. The image below is after the translation from Arabic to English via Google Chrome:

And if in Arabic, follow the instructions in the image below:

A sample of the Visa no. found on the Visa Stamp can be seen in the image below:

5. On the next page, the system will fetch and display applicant’s Identity details on the screen. All that needs to be filled here is the Profession Title as mentioned on the Iqama, Email address, Mobile no. and make sure the name of the City is written in Arabic. If you do not know the Arabic name of the city, either take help or use Google translator to get an accurate translation. If some details are not mentioned, it can be filled in manually. Once again, it is advisable to have an Arabic native speaker to assist you in filling the form to avoid errors.

6. On the Next page, the duration of the visit has to be mentioned. It can be anything between 30 days to 180 days.

Note: In the column asking for the number of days of visa required, type “90”. The final visit visa duration is allotted solely on the discretion of the Passport Office. You may get a 3-month visit visa, otherwise it can be only a 1-month visa as per the new rules. However, you can always renew the visit visa twice, and each extension will be based on the initially approved visit duration. For instance, the visa was issued for 1 month, then it will only be renewed for 1 month.

7. Proceed by clicking on the ‘Addition’ button as shown in the image above to add the details of the family member/s for whom the visit visa application is being prepared. A pop-up screen will open up where the applicant will be required to enter the Name and other details of the family member/s. Kindly follow the guidelines mentioned below strictly in order to fill this form accurately.
🔘 In this form, the applicant will need to accurately enter the Name, Religion, Gender, Nationality, Relationship with the applicant and the City the concerned person will be travelling from.
Please note that the name of your family member AND the name of the sponsor (i.e., YOU, the applicant) should be filled ONLY in English exactly as mentioned on the passport. All the remaining data are to be filled in Arabic.
🔘 In case more than one family member is visiting you and are coming by the same flight, enter their names in the same form, otherwise use separate forms if they are travelling separately.
🔘 In the column asking for the purpose of the visit, type as “family visit” in Arabic.

8. Once you fill in this form and submit, you will get a filled form with all the given details as shown in the image below. Double check to make sure everything is correct. This form will contain an acknowledgement number on it. Print two copies of this. Keep one copy with yourself as a reference. On the other copy, the applicant must sign in the place mentioned in the bottom along with the date and most importantly, the signature and stamp of the applicant’s company sponsor must be taken.

9. Submit your application to Chamber of commerce :




🔘 Sign and put the date on the printed application.
🔘 Take sign and stamp of your sponsor on the printed application.
🔘 Visit to chamber of commerce of your city where your employer is registered.
🔘 Pay the Visa application fee of approximately 30 SR to Chamber of commerce.
🔘 After submitting, you will receive a print out from chamber of commerce.

10. Wait for about a week and then visit the above mentioned MOFA link once again. Type in your Iqama number and the acknowledgement number which is mentioned in the printout you took earlier. If you get the same page after hitting the ‘Enter’ button on your keyboard, it means that your visa is still under processing. Otherwise, you should get a so-called ‘Yellow slip’. Take two ‘COLOR’ printouts of this, and keep one for your reference, and note down the URL address.

11. The next step is to send the following documents to your home country or wherever your concerned family member is located:

👉 The ‘Yellow slip’ color printout as mentioned above
👉 Copy of your Iqama
👉 Copy of your passport (remember, you are the sponsor)
👉 Copy of your marriage certificate (required only when you plan to bring your in-laws to prove the relationship between your wife and her parent(s) – this is to ensure that the visitor is really your in-law
👉 Printout of your last 3 months’ bank statement
👉 A letter in English addressed to the Saudi Embassy / Consulate of your home country stating that you will be present to receive your guest
👉 Introduction letter in Arabic from your employer giving details about your salary- Salary Certificate.

Send all of the above by courier to your home country. Along with the above documents, the following should be attached by your family member and submitted to the Saudi Embassy / Consulate in your home country:
1. Original passport of each family member who plans to visit
2. Passport copy of your wife (in case your in-laws are visiting – this is to prove that the visitor is indeed your in-law)

Good luck with your efforts to bring your family to the kingdom!

FAQ’s


Who is eligible to be invited on a family visit visa?

We can only invite the following immediate relatives in Saudi Arabia on family visa either on visit or permanent status:
👉Mother
👉Father
👉Wife
👉Children
👉Sisters
👉Mother & Father in Law

Can I renew my family’s visit visa under the new law?

Previously, the visa initially issued for 90 days was renewable two more times for 3 months each, extendable up to a maximum of 270 days but as per the recent changes, the Directorate General of the Passport Office has announced that there would be no extensions in visa beyond the maximum limit of 180 days. Another change brought in recent laws is that unlike the previous law, there would be no stoppage of issuing visit visas and they would be issued throughout the year and it is totally upon the discretion of the Visa Office to offer a one-month visit visa or a 3-month visit visa or anything in between. If the initial visit duration was issued for 1 month, the renewal also would be only for 1 month. If it was issued for 3 months, the renewal also would be for 3 months and so on.

What happens if the visit visa expires or the visa holder overstays?

Earlier, it used to be SR 10,000 for those who overstay and the visit visa expires. As per the new laws, this fine has now increased to SR 15,000 plus deportation for the first offence, and, SR 25,000 plus 3 months jail followed by deportation if the offence is repeated for the second time and SR 50,000 plus 6 months’ jail followed by deportation for the third offence.

How to check your application status online?

It may take a week or more to process your application. Keep patience and check your status everyday.
1. Go to MOFA website
2. Choose Application Submitted
3. Enter your application number, Iqama number and image code.
4. Click Inquire.

How to easily submit my approved application to Saudi Embassy in the home country?

Once your visa got approval, send copy of your application or the number of your application to your family member and it is advisable to let them contact the nearest agent. An agent will charge for further process in Saudi embassy of your home country but the task will become much easier for your family members.
Documents required for this process are Original passport of the concerned visit visa holder, the sponsor’s Iqama & Passport copies, 4 passport size photographs.
For married sister:
Authorization letter from husband must be attached.
For Mother in Law or Father in Law:
Marriage certificate and copy of the spouse’s passport and Iqama must be attached.

What if my application is rejected?

It is common sometimes for the visa application to get rejected. Do not worry and apply again and again till you succeed. Sometimes it may get accepted the 4th time, sometimes it may get accepted first time itself. So do not lose hope.

How much time does the visa holder have for visa stamping and travelling once the visa is stamped?

Once visa is approved Saudi embassy has 3 months of time for stamping. Once visa is stamped, visa holder MUST travel within 1 month else the visa will expire.

    1) How many months minimum husband eqamah validity for wife & kids residents visa stamping ?

    2)if mother have resident visa.but didn’t stamped yet. Need to take visa from here (saudi Arabia) for 3 month old baby.
    Because previously
    1) if mother have visa, just sent the both passports to consulate.They will stamp for new born babies
    or
    2) just come to ksa without stamping for kids below 6 months old baby, airports staff or emigration employees give the border number then go to Jawasath make the eqama for kids.
    But now somebody told me now these two types are not allowed. Need to take visa must from here.

    My parents visit visa will expire during Ramadan EID Holidays say 04-Jul-2016, when I am trying to apply for visit visa extension through “absher”, they are not accepting with a massage
    “Sorry!! The Visit Visa (VV) can be extended only within the (seven) days before expiry date or within 3 day after expiry date”.
    Please suggest, shall I wait for 9 more days or use other option to visit Jawazat office.

    Plz update here if anyone got visit visa after hajj. And what about new visa law?? Will they charge 3000 sr for visit visa?? Anyone has confirmed info about this??

  • Cat

    Hi, I am bringing my husband to KSA on a family visit visa. We were issued with a single entry invitation but have since learned we can apply for a multi entry/exit visa.
    If he comes on a single entry visa does anyone know if I can change the visa to multi entry/exit through Absher (or another method) when he arrives.
    We’d quite like to get out to Dubai / Bahrain etc on the weekends.
    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    • Rajendar Tambampalli

      As my knowledge, you have to apply in the beginning for multiple entry visa. It will be charged SR 3,000 for a six-month multiple entry visa, SR 5,000 for one-year multiple entry visa, and SR 8,000 for two-year multiple entry visa.
      You can apply for it later after he arrives. Visit https://visa.mofa.gov.sa (You should get somebody’s assistance to read Arabic).
      Best of luck.

  • ALI SAIKHU

    Dears friends,

  • Syed Basarath

    dear friends, I’d like to share my story which may give hope to all… I contact an agent on 22nd of September 16 and asked him to arrange a visa for my wife kids & In laws. he proimised i’ll be getting visa on 25th of September, when I called him on 25th he said 26th, on 26th he said 27th & so on… On 28th which was Wedensday in the afternoon time, I decided to apply by myself as well hence I filled out the form & took signature of my boss & submitted on 28th of September at 2pm to Jeddah CoC. I checked the status on 29th of September in afternoon time & it was already approved. which means it took less than 24 hours for me to get approval that too at a time when lot of people said, it’s still Hajj season & i will never get it. so don’t lose hope & just fill out the form in proper way. & you may get it…

    I had submitted my application a week back i.e. 27.09.2016 but unfortunately it got rejected today due to the implementation of new procedures for family visas. As per the my company GRO the entire process has been changed and there is a new system implanted.

    Please guide that whether the fee for the single entry family has been increased or revised?
    Suggestion and guidance required.

      • Ahmed

        how much it cost sir?

  • anzil

    Dear friends,

    Any body stamped visit visa from indian embassy after 2 nd october 2016. One of the person in our discussion inform me his wife’s passport cant’t stamped from indian embassy
    They says you have to apply again with new fee.

    If anybody have such experience please comment. I am also waiting for visit visa stamping from delhi embassy

  • Syed Basarath

    Guys let me clear most of the big doubts in single comment if I can because I’m in a big regret that y I didn’t apply visa by myself 3 days back because i got visa approval within 24 hours but still it was too late as 1st of Muharram changed everything.
    1. Yes the Sr. 2000/- is implemented & it should be paid while submitting the passport to respective embassies for visa endorsement.
    2. The Visa applying process is same as before with minor changes but everything else remain same.
    3. whoever lucky guys stamped their passports before 1st of Muharram they pay nothing.
    4. Guys receiving visa before 1st of Muharram & stamping passports after 1st of Muharram shall pay Sr. 2000/-
    5. It’s better to wait for 4-5 days before taking any further steps in hurry to analyse the situation & let everything come to normal again because some agents are promising that they will get passports stamped without fees, or with some fees but as far as India is concern the matter of the fact is system is not accepting any payments & it will be only after couple of days, agents will have proper information.

    • akbar

      i applied for my wife and 2 kids. do i have to pay fee 2000 for each individual passport ?

Bro kindly give complete details and confirm ….Thanks

        • syedsalmannazim

  • Shahid

    Dear Friend

    Can tell me family visit visa extension charge as per new rules

  • Nayela

    Assalamualaikum. I was planning to call my mother on visit visa for 90 days as I am expecting my first baby. I was told by the agent if my mother has visited Kingdom in the last 3 yrs then we have to pay 2000 Sr and get the stamping. But he is not sure yet with the rules. My mother had come last year umrah. Do we have to pay 2000 sr?

    • Syed Basarath

      hi there, for visit visa you’ve to pay Sr. 2000/- irrespective of previous travel history. if you’re from India then the good news is passport are being stamped since last Friday so you shouldn’t have problem & if you’re from pakistan, I’m helpless.

      • Nayela

        Jazakallah for your reply. So you mean to say irrespective of when my mother has visited saudi, a second time entry will cost her 2k Sr? N yes I’m from India. We were planning to call her next month. Could you clarify as to where this 2k has to be paid? In India to the agent or saudi chamber office??

        • Syed Basarath

          No second, even first time travelers who are coming on visit visa shall pay Sr. 2000/-. in your case yes you’ve to pay Sr. 2000 & this should be paid by your agent to consulate in Mumbai or Embassy in Delhi. if you remember before we were paying Rs. 5 or 6k to agents in India for stamping now they are charging Rs. 40k. I’ve submitted 3 passports of my wife & in laws yesterday & hopefully stamping should be done by Friday, I’ll write here if all goes well.

          • Nayela

            Yes I remember paying the agent 5k for my process in Mumbai. Bt 40k is way too much fee to be paid 🙁 In Sha Allah do keep me posted as to how much the agent charges. I’m just worried my mum doesn’t have to pay in airport anything if the agent doesn’t charge in India

          • Ahmed29

            Salam brother it’s visit visa fee Saudi really it’s tomuch even uk .usa visit visa fee not like that I remember that when I getting visa uk for 2 years I pay sr 1400 and when I getting 5 year multi visa paid sr 3300 only

          • Nayela

            Not only this but visas now have additional charge of health insurance to be covered of 250 USD (approximately 17,400 Rs) without which embassy will not accept visas from 17 Oct. So basically visit visa costs 60k alone instead of 5k.

          • Sania Akbar

            Source please ? I have heard the same… have you applied for visa?

          • Nayela

            Yes I have sent my mother’s visa for stamping. The agent has asked 58k INR. 40k of visit visa fee plus 17500 for insurance. I’ve screen shot of the insurance rule from embassy. Please see the below https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b7ad64fc841d7a4fbac0158317b0db11f27741c7a5c5a9c3b9f1cab454102924.jpg

    Hello

    Thank you for this detailed version. But today I went to chamber of commerce after getting the visa form filled,signed & Stamped. They are not accepting it anymore in Chamber of commerce. All the visit visas has to be submitted online through http://chamber.sa/ENGLISH/mainpage/pages/homepage.aspx.

    I tried to submit through this page but not possible. Companies HR or manager or owner are authorized to do it.

    So I would like to request the admin of this page to kindly cross check if this is the only procedure and update accordingly so that people can be guided in the right direction.

    Thank you.

    Regards

    In my visit visa the validity period is mentioned as 90 days and duration of stay is mentioned as 90 days. But you are saying I should travel within one month of stamping. Then what that validity period means? If I could not travel within one month of stamping what can I do to extend the visa validity?

    • Zeeshan Qayyum

      From Pakistan visit visa per person charges are as follows:
      2000 SAR + 250 $ + Service charges of Etimad approx 10,000 – 12,000 PKR per passport and maximum days you can get is 90 which can be extended twice:
      total duration of 90 + 90 (1st extension) + 90 (2nd extension) = 270 days but all these are subject to visit visa extension approval from Abhar Account. 100 SAR per extension cost.
      While for permanent visa you only have to pay 2000 SAR per passport with some Service charges of Etimad. Then your family will be with you here permanently.

      Visit visa can be extended twice (2 times) if initial period granted for 90 days that you can can have total duration of 90 + 90 (1st extension) + 90 (2nd extension) = 270 days but all these are subject to visit visa extension approval from Abhar Account.

      • Usman Khan

        Bhai new rules ky mutabiq ham shayd 1 bar hi kar sakty hain

        • Zeeshan Qayyum

          Yes you are right as per extension website they have mention maximum days of stay is 180.
          So if you get 90 days visa then it will only be extended one time.
          But not sure since i heard before visit visa got extended twice.

  • Prudence Ntlhane

    Can the documents be submitted directly to Saudi embassy of my home country instead via the agency? In South Africa the agency that deals with Saudi visas charges +/-R19000.00 equivalent to +/-SR5400.00 just stamping process of visa. That to mevis a rip off because the visa is already processed and approved this side.
