How to Apply Permanent Family Visa Online

Not a day goes as Saudi government is changing system more simple and online oriented.

Now expatriates can easily apply for family Visa online. No need to go to Istiqdam and stand in long line or wait to get appointment date for Istiqdam.

We provide here below detailed step by step process for application of Permanent Family Visa ONLINE:

1. Pay visa fee – SR 2,000
This is government fee for permanent visa to be paid to MOI. It has to be paid through SADAD system by ATM or your online banking account. If you do not have online banking account, you can use your friends account to make payment. You can see detailed online visa payment procedure here. For ATM payment process, visit ATM Permanent visa payment procedure

2. Login to Abshir Account on MOI website
Abshir is the main portal for all government related transactions like exit re-entry for dependents, online govt. appointments etc.
If you do not have Abshir account, see How to create Abshir account

3. Goto E-Services
4. Then click ISITIQDAM
5. Click “Family Visa Services
6. Read the guidelines mentioned on this page and then click “New Family Visa Application
7. This page will show your information as per the MOI system. Click “Apply For Family Visa” to proceed.
At this stage, some people get the following error
“Your Application cannot be processed because Istiqdam e-service Business rules have not been covered”
It means that rules given in the previous page are not covered:
– Iqama is valid less than 90 days
– Most of the time what it means that your profession is not in the approved category list. It gives error even for some “approved profession”. In such case, you can apply through Istiqdam. As the new system is being developed, it may take some time for things to become smooth.

8. Enter your details
Enter the detail about yourself – Your salary, education level and date of receiving certificate and main subject of study. All fields should be entered or the form will be rejected in any field is left blank.

9. Enter Dependents Details
On the same page, you need to enter the details of dependents (wife / kids) as follows:

Name : Should be as per passport. If the name is only two words in the passport, then put “-” (dash) in the blank spaces as the system will not accept empty boxes. Click the picture on side to see the enlarged example.

Nationality : As per passport
Passport Number:  As per passport
Age :  As per passport
Religion :  As per passport
Relationship : Wife / son / daughter
Port of Boarding : Technically it means the airport from which you are boarding. However, it may mean the Embassy/Consulate location from where you are going to get your passport stamped. There is still confusion about it. We hope this confusion will get cleared with time.

Then click “Add New Dependent”
Repeat this step if you have more than one dependent.

10. Tick the check box and click “Submit Family Visa”
11. You will get a message showing your visa application reference number. Click “Print Application”

12. Attestation of Visa Application
At this point, your online process is completed.
Next you need to get the application signed and stamped by your sponsor.
Then go to Chamber of Commerce  (CoC) and get it stamped.
Remember, you have 30 days get it stamped by CoC or else the application will be cancelled. Then you will need apply for new application.

13. SMS confirmation
Once your visa is accepted, you will get confirmation through SMS
Also, you can check if visa accepted by checking on the MOI website for Available Funds. The SR 2000 will disappear once the visa is confirmed.

14. Print the visa
Once the visa, is approved, then it has to appear in the government system. See How to check the Visa Status.
Once the visa status is updated, you can

Now we cannot change the name of her wife in each and every document. They said you must have to fill all the 4 boxes.

    • Jawad

        • Sabith

          When did you last try? I tried on Friday and it worked.
          My Wife has only First Name and Last Name.
          So what I did was filled the first field and last field. and put “-” on middle two fields.

          If you have tried before Friday (27-03-2015), Then Try Again now by putting “-” on last two fields.

          If you have tried after Friday, Then try putting “-” in middle two fields. Try and Update please.

          • Prashant Dixit

            “-” did not work for me. I had put my name in between her two names. The visa in Delhi has been rejected since it does not match with her name on the passport. My wife has got only two fields in her name. I am trying to figure out if there is a way to change the name after the visa is approved. Let me know if there is a way.

  • Abdulrazak

    I tried to remit the fee using online banking, there are two different options;
    1. Alien Control – > Dependent Entry Visa
    which asks to enter Iqama number and number of dependent, asking to pay 2000
    2. Labour Importation – > Family Visa
    Which asks sponsor ID and number of Visa, this multiplies this number with 2000, i.e, if number of visa is three, it shows 6000 to pay
    Which one is the right option? Please advise

    • Guest

      First one is right. Second for nationals to issue visa under their sponsorship

      • Imran Sayed

        You are wrong bro, please dont give false info when you dont know anything.

      • shafiq ahmed khan

        You are wrong bro,

    • Imran Sayed

      Second option ia correct, in ppace of sponsor ID enter your iqama number, and visa number when you apply online. See you have add all the dependents name in one visa only and pay 2000.

    2. what we heard that now no education certificate is required as per the new rules. once you get sms for visa approval your wife have to submit attested marriage certificate in saudi embassey in your country while stamping the visa but here now they dont need any document or just marriage certificate no degree required, is it true ????

    how about documents verification ( marriage certificate,children birth certificate etc) and also before we use to get yellow slip and what about now?

    • Ali

      Your question is not clear Remmy

      Regards

    • Fazlu

      Instead of yellow paper.. you can print visa from your abshir

    • For the online process, this is not required. Once your visa is approved, you will get sms with your visa number which you need to send to your family. No papers required.

  • Naveed Mahmood

    Dear All, i have 2 questions:.(1): Do i have to upload my attested documents on the website?. (2): Do i have to submit the original visa paper to the istikhdam office after getting it stamped from chamber of commerce ?.

    • Ali

      Dear Naveed,
      No you don’t have to upload online.

      Regards

      • Naveed Mahmood

        Mr.Ali, what about my 2nd question “Do i have to submit the original visa paper to the istikhdam office after getting it stamped from chamber of commerce ?.”. Regards.

        • Naveed, there is no need to go to Istiqdam if you are applying for family visa online. After CoC, you will get sms with visa number. You need to give this number to your stamping agent in your home country.

          • Naveed Mahmood

            Sir, as you may see in the feeds my profession is computer programmer and i have B.Com degree. When filling the online family visa form it asks for qualification, i am in doubt that they will reject my application because degree/qualification is B.Com and profession is computer programmer. Kindly advise..Regards.

  • islamuddin

    i have sent visa no. to stamping agent in india .but they are not able trace visa issued by moi . could you plz tell me the reasion

  • Rao Zeeshan

    Dear Sir,

    meanly we are facing the issue with IQAMA profession. if system has option in education. 1) unlettered, 2) reads and writes etc. ??? for what ??? if basis on salary system can providing the visa to every one then every profession should be accepted. or there should be list of non approve profession only.

    it is my opinion

    • Good observation Rao.
      At this stage, it does not make sense.
      However, it may mean that in the future they may use this criteria to judge. Or maybe they are collecting statistics.
      Let us wait and see what happens.

      • Rao Zeeshan

        Thanks for the comments…

  • Ashfaque Hussain

    I heard that now a days only profession in iqama should be good enough to get family visa. No degree is require to attest. Is this really true? If so then this new online system is perfect to apply online permanent family visa……and let me know if anyone of you is succeed since this is declared.

The visa was approved by MOI and MOFA here but in Delhi visa stamping has been rejected since it does not match with her name on the passport. On her passport she has only two names. I am trying to figure out if there is a way to change the name after the visa is approved by MOI and CoC here. Let me know if there is a way.

      Hi Ali,

      I did the same thing and visa at New Delhi has been rejected. I am trying to figure out how to change the name in existing visa. I can not do it on MOI website since there is no such option there. Question is how to change the names if the visa has already been approved by MOI and MOFA.

  • ALI

    Well on her pasport my name is also mentioned beside her own.

    • Muhammad Amin

      All is Well

  • Naveed Mahmood

  • Noor

    Dear All,

    I have applied online permanent family visa and submitted to Chamber of Commerce, 5 working days have gone but i haven’t received any sms or confirmation regarding the status of visa. Normally how many days it will take to receive confirmation sms. do i need to go to coc for inquiry regarding my visa status? do they respond for the inquiry???

    Kindly advise.

  • Umair

    Hello brother, I got confirmation message with visa number from MOI. But I heard that there is one more step remaining. I must have to wait for the approval from MOFA. Is it right or no? Please guide me.

    • Noor

      Dear Bro Umair,

      After how many days of application submission to Chamber of commerce you got confirmation sms.
      kindly reply

      • Umair

        Within 15 mins . same day

        • Noor

          for me 5 working days + 2 off days have gone but the sms not yet received.
          If i go to chamber once again for inquiry regarding he status do they response???

    • Muhammad Amin

      yes right you have to wait more three days

      • Umair

        ok. But is it sure that i’ll get the visa? Because they already deducted 2000 SR. and they sent visa number also. So is there any chance to get permanent visa after the approval of MOFA?

    • Noor

      Salam Mr. Amin / Umair,

      As I inquired regarding MOFA process, it will be done in the
      respective home country by the local agent during the medical and visa stamping. So send
      your document to your family ASAP.

    • Muhammad Amin

      dear congratulation actually you got it already once you received an sms from moi but u have to wait 3 more days to update it on MOFA

  • shuaib

    I was receiving the same error in Istaqdam page “Your sponsor is not added for family visa”. For this one has to physically go to istaqdam office and show them the page of error in Arabic. Also note that going to the wrong counter window in Istaqdam will be misleading. So when going to that office enter the first hall after the gate and check with second counter from the left. There will be a hand written sign with “Algqlak”. Just show him the error page in arabic with Iqama and he will change something on the system and it will be working after 24 hours

  • Naveed Mahmood

    Dear All,

    Please be informed that, when you submit the online permanent
    family visa application to chamber of commerce by paying 25/- SAR, the sms has
    to come immediately, if not, then it means that COC guys have not updated your
    application in their system.

    In my case, I filed my online permanent family visa application
    to chamber of commerce by paying 25/- SAR on 29th March 2015, but
    till this morning I haven’t received response sms from COC, I directly went to
    coc and inquired & requested to update my application in their system, the
    next minute I received sms regarding the approval of my family visa.

    Thanks & Regards

    • Abdul Shukoor

      THANKS A LOT FOR GIVING SUCH VALUABLE INFORMATION

        Its simple, once you receive the confirmation sms from Chamber of Commerse;

        1. Just go to you moi web portal but don’t login,
        2. Choose e-service
        3. in Left side menu choose Labour importation-Public query Labour Importation.
        4. Enter you Iqama no, Visa no and the image code given
        After you enter the above details, you will see the details with boarder no. That’s it
        5. Just print it out and send it to the local agent in your country in order to proceed further,
        6.Rest the local agent will take care from medical to visa stamping
        7. Once your visa is stamped from your country, then the MOFA verification won’t be appeared in your portal.

    • Mohammed Ahmed

      may be your sponsor chamber expired

  • Edwin

    after a successful online application for permanent family visa, COC attestation stamp ok. whats next? should i do appointment to visit istiqdam to show my university certificate, marriage certificate & birth certificate of my son with all in arabic translations? please need an answer. thanks

    • Mohammed Ahmed

      no need to go istiqdam, just check on https://visa.mofa.gov.sa/visaServices/OtherPersonsServices
      after 3 or 4 days it will show here visa, just send that print to home country for stamping,
      to check you should choose option visa issued from mofa then you put visa number which you receive after coc by sms ,and your iqama number

      • Edwin

        how about my certificate when & where i will show this? please guide me? thanks

        • Mohammed Ahmed

          you need to show in your home country visa stamping time in saudi embassy just copy enough of marrage cirtificate,birth cirtificate of your son and they will check your passport and iqama copy also

          • Edwin

            so u mean to say i will not show all this certificates, university, birth & marriage certificate in online application? so why our HR Dept. ask all this certificates with saudi embassy attestation & with arabic translation. Please guide me about this matter. Thanks

          • Mohammed Ahmed

            that certificates need if your applying thru estiqdam manual procedure, but now they started new system online, this new system is very simple and easy if your profession in there approved professions list they will issue visa so no need any certificate to get visa

          • Edwin

            I just ask again our HR Manager about this certificates. again he told me this certificates should be saudi embassy attestation & with arabic translation. He told me also after a successful online application i will get an appontment to istiqdam to show all this certificate. Please guide me, i need a concrete answer about this matter. Thanks

          • Mohammed Ahmed

            he have some wrong information no need to go or show any one any certificate here in saudia every day so many people getting visas just read other people comments you understand very well new procedure check this link also

      • Edwin

        actually hindi pa ako nagprocess ng online application nagsurvey lng ako, next week pa ako magon-line application.

        • John Reyes Cruz

          Thanks kabayan. Sa May pa ako mag apply online. Renew pa kasi Iqama ko

          • Edwin

            kabayan nag-online application nako, nakareceived na rin ako ng message from MOI wait ko nlng yun yellow visa sa mofa website.

          • John Reyes Cruz

            Congrats Edwin. Ako sa May pa mag aapply, dito pa si misi visit visa. sayang kung uuwi agad

          • Edwin

            john pwede nmn iapply ng permanent visa kahit nandito sila, ang anak ko nga visit visa rin cy pro nkuhanan ko pa rin ng permanent fmly visa bale uuwi fmly ko sa May pa then balik na sila d2 by June b4 magstart ang school kc d2 rin nagstudy anak ko. tsaka 1 arabic year ang expiration ng fmly visa kpg narelease na ng MOFA.

          • John Reyes Cruz

            Confirm ba yon Mr. Edwin na 1 year ang validity? Balak ko na rin nga magapply online eh. pagka release ng Visa ng anak mo paki share na lang kung 1 year talaga validity. Meron ka na ba agency?

          • Edwin

            1 arabic year it means 355 days ang sabi nila sa blog comments mga next week ko pa siguro maprint yun yellow visa sa MOFA website pro confirm na sa SMS message ko been issued Visa release na tsaka may border No. na ang anak ko bale Visa No. nlng hinihintay ko tsaka sabi sa message ng MOI i can continue to complete the procedure in (Saudi Embassy / Consulate). yun third box ang hindi ko nilagyan but rather nilagyan ko lng ng dash (-) so yun first box surname, second box first name, third box dash (-) & fourth box middle name.

          • John Reyes Cruz

            ok thanks Edwin

          • John Reyes Cruz

            Mr. Edwin nong lumabas ba ang Visa, ang name ng anak mo is the same nong nagfill up ka (last name, first name & middle name) may nabasa din kasi ako na pag fill up daw is first name, middle name then last name. thanks

          • Edwin

            kc sabi ifill-up yun form as per passport name kaya sinunod ko lang kung papaano ifill-up yun form. pki chk mo yun passport mo surname, first name then middle name. ok naman yun nakalagay sa application ng anak ko ganun din ang pagkasulat surname, first name then middle name. yun visa sa MOFA website ganun din ang pagkasulat.

          • John Reyes Cruz

            Thanks..next week apply na ko online.

          • Edwin

            yun box no. 3 ang nilagyan ko lang ng dash (-)

          • Edwin

            Gudam, musta na? ask ko lng ulit, kc pauwi na ang anak ko next week. wla ba talaga option sa abshir online para makakuha ng exit paper para sa visit visa ng anak ko? bka kc ma-question pa sa erport dahil wla siya dala ng clearance para sa exit for visit visa. waiting for your reply. Thanks

          • John Reyes Cruz

            Hi Edwin, Passport lang kailangan. sa Abshir pwede mo icheck Visit visa ng anak mo, iclick mo yung extend visit visa lalabas information kung kelan actual expiration. Ngapala reject ako sa online, sa istiqdam ako magaapply kasi General Accountant profession ko. icheck nila lahat documents ko. ano profession mo?

          • Edwin

            Project Engineer Profession sa Iqama ko, so ok na yun passport lang kc baka hanapan pa ng Exit paper sa immigration. Oo personal ka nlng pumunta sa istiqdam pra maayos mo kaagad. Thanks sa info

          • John Reyes Cruz

            Daya ng MOI, di ba pag Engineer dapat meron kayo SCE membership, bakit accepted kayo sa online hehe

          • Edwin

            Sir meron ako SCE, Consultant Engineer cathegory ko kc nasa consulting firm ako nagwowork ngayon.

          • John Reyes Cruz

            Ibig ko sabihin kabayan bakit pwede kayo sa online tapos kami gusto makita muna degree namin hehe

          • Edwin

            Di ako nirequired sa on-line application ng SCE pro nirequired ba yun Saudi Council Certificate nyo para makakuha ng Iqama? kc sa mga Engineers ang cathegory sa Visa kailangan ng Saudi Council Certificate before marelease ang Iqama, so siguro dun na lang sila nagbase sa iqama.

          • John Reyes Cruz

            ah siguro nga, di kami required magsubmit ng SOCPA certificate pag renew iqama. Sige thanks

          • John Reyes Cruz

            Ok na yung passport, 8 years na balik balik si misis dito visit visa wala naman kami naencounter na problema

          • Edwin

            ok Thanks

          • Edwin

            wala pa ako agency sa pinas. may alam ka ba? pero nkapag-inquire nako, need daw sa agency yun yellow visa galing d2, NBI clearance, Medical Exam w/ agency referral which clinic you will go. then lastly all the red ribbon for all the certificates you have like diploma, marriage & birth certificates sa anak mo. may alam ka ba kung pwede na directly ilipat na d2 from visit visa into permanent or iqama na.

          • John Reyes Cruz

Thanks God ok na

          • John Reyes Cruz

            Thanks Kabayan

          • Jin

            Kabayan, Ask ko lang sana yung doon sa Applicant’s Information. What do we usually write under “Major subjects studied”? Do we write our major as “chemical engineering” or major subjects as “Organic Chemistry” or “Plant Design”? Thanks a lot.

          • Edwin

            B.S. Architecture ako, ang nilagay ko is Architecture, kabayan pwede mo siguro ilagay lang yun courrse mo or Engineering lng. natapos ko yun family visa ko 5 working days.

          • Edwin

            matanong ko lang, kapag nag-exit ba ang anak ko sa visit visa nya kailangan pa ba kumuha ng online exit paper or pwede na diretso sa airport immigration ipakita na lng passport nya? Thanks

    After entering the ‘Dependent Details’ when I click “Add New Dependent”. It says, you already have a wife who is on the Family Visa. My first wife was deleted from the system and my Absher account doesn’t show any dependent with me at the moment, despite that it says that my first wife is still on my family Visa.

        Dear shukoor

        whats my problem is i got family visa online, but my wife is pregnant. she cannot travel before delivery, how can i bring my baby after delivery. any idea sir ji?

        in visa only wife name is there?

      • Prashant Dixit

        Dear Abdul,

        This unfortunate situation happened in my case. At the time of filing online visa for my family, for some reason, system was not accepting ‘dashes’ in the middle two fields. So I did the same and entered my wife’s father name in the middle. Now the consulate in Delhi has rejected the visa. Do you know if there is a way to change the name without reissuing the visa? I checked MOI account, I can not file for a new visa since earlier one already exists. MOI is telling me to book ishtiqdam appointment.

        Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated.

        • Abdul Shukoor

          Its better to go Istiqdam of your area and show him what happen to your case they will correct it or ask you to fill new application again on line.Best of luck

          • Prashant Dixit

            Thanks Abdul. I went to the Istiqdam office and i realized they do not deal with the visa issued online using MOI website. Then i went to the MOI office on King Fahd road. It seems they can help provided you have a sponsor letter requesting for cancelling the existing visa and issuing a new one. There seems to be no way to edit names on approved visa.

  • sohail

    Dear,

    I have submitted the family visa application at CoC on 05-4-2015 but still i did not receive any sms. How many days it will take?

      • sohail

        Dear thanks.
        Today I went to CoC, they said some issue in your app, so cancel this app and submit new one.
        But now when I submitted the app request after filling all info. I got error. “Problem in data, please visit passport office.”
        Is this issue with my data or my family. I asked them, they said we dont know.

      • sohail

        Dear,
        Thanks. I visited the CoC, they said, there is issue in your application, you have to cancel this and apply again, so I cancelled the application and try to apply new one , but this time I am getting error “Problem in Data please visit Passport Office.” while submitting the application.
        Any idea of this error?

    Dear I am a lady doctor by profession doctor the moi website says females can not apply family visa through abshir service please explain why

    • Junaid

      I don’t think you will find anyone on here being able to answer your question. I would advise you contact Istiqdam but even then whether they will have an answer for you, I’m not sure. You might as well apply through the manual process.

      • Kainwal

        On the website of abshir it says females have to go to istaqdam office with application form

      If it let’s you apply, then your profession is accepted for online. If it throws up an error then you will need to resort to the manual process.

    Hi,

    I got my online family visa application stamped at CoC on 23/04/15. How long does it usually take for SMS to be received?

    • Edwin

      my friend after you paid & stamped in COC you will received immediately between 15 minutes to 1 hour only.

      • Junaid

        Hi Edwin,
        I went back to CoC today as I have not received the SMS nor it’s updated online. They told me that although my application had been stamped by CoC (they gave it me back), I needed to go to the main CoC in Jeddah and have the application activated/registered before 12pm. Which CoC did you apply? Did they take your application from you?

        • Edwin

          yes they took my application form but our liason office gave me an electronic copy for the coc receipt copy registered. actually our liason office is the one went to Riyadh COC for my application stamped.

    • Abdul Shukoor

  • Naveed Mahmood

    Hi. What to do if my company refused me to write the salary 4000, my current salary is 3125 only.Can i still get the visa ?. Is it necessary to sign and stamp from company on printed application ?.

    • Abdul Shukoor

      If you are applying thru Istiqdam they need salary certificate with Company letter head and CoC stamp,if online no need.

      • Naveed Mahmood

        Sir, after printing the paper, i have to go to CoC, and they will not stamp it without my HR manager’s signature. then what should i do?.

  • Ashraf

    Hai,…My iqama profession is General Accountant, changed profession(decoration technician) during nitaqat implementation, I am B.com graduate and moi not accepting application, asking to visit istiqdam for occupation study, my certificates are not attested from embassy.

  • Yousuf

    Hello there, Just today I paid Sr. 2000/- and the amount appeared on moi website also. But when I click on the option ” Apply For family visa” it gives a message that ” Your application cannot be processed. Because Istiqdam e-service business rules have not been covered”. “MYPROFESSION IS COMPUTER NETWORK TECHNICIAN” AND IT IS ELIGIBLE FOR FAMILY VISA PROFESSION LIST.
    what wrong I am doing? can anybody advice. thanks

    • Abdul Shukoor

      You have to check your Iqama valid for 90 days,your profession in iqama is same as what you writing here.If all are matching than you have to approach for manual (through Istiqdam)

      • Yousuf

        Dear Shukoor thanks for the reply, I don’t understand everything is perfect according to iqama, then why error is displaying or they did not include the profession which i have.going to istekdam is takes long time.need lot of documents.

      • Noushad Ali

        Dear Mr. Shukoor,
        I need your kind help and consulting to get my visa. I am behind this for long days. I paid money in absher and try to apply in online. Unfortunately my profession “Catering Service Supervisor” not accepted the system. I get appointment and again I need to wait until the end of this month, and also they need different documents to be submitted at that time. If I change my profession to Restaurant Manager can I do my processes successfully?.
        Awaiting for your valuable suggestions. …

        • Junaid

          By changing profession you may be actually able to apply online but unless someone else can tell you, who has the same profession as you, you will not know whether your application online will be processed. If it’s easily changeable then it might be worth changing it.

          • Noushad Ali

            If I change my profession to any other suitable one then they match it with my certificate?

          • Junaid

            You can change your profession through your sponsor. No certificate is required as far as I am concerned. I had my profession changed lately and no documents were required.

  • Yousuf

    thanks shukoor bro, but why I need to go thru manual process, why online facility giving this error. my iqama is valid for more 11 months and profession is same as on iqama.

    • Abdul Shukoor

      Than your sponaor is not registard or your company in red catagory

      • Yousuf

        no sir my company is green category, 75 % employees are saudi citizens

    • Junaid

      Yousuf,
      You are not doing anything wrong. Majority of the time, this error occurs due to your Iqama profession. Although, it maybe eligible for family visa, it is not yet updated/recognized on the online system thus you are seeing the error. You will need to apply manually through Istiqdam.

      • Yousuf

        thanks for the reply Junaid, as u said need to go manually through istiqdam, but why one of my friend got the online visa without going to istiqdam, same profession on my friend’s iqama.

      • Yousuf

        Thanks for the reply Junaid, as u said i have to go manually thru istiqdam, but why my friend has got online vis approval on same profession what i have.i think may be this is website error.

  • Naveed Mahmood

    Dears, can anyone show me a final printed paper as sample.It would be a great help for me.Thanks in advance.

    • Junaid

      Insha’Allah, once I get mine sorted, I will show you.

  • Naveed Mahmood

    Dears, after i get the visa number.should i send back original and translation of Marriage certificate to Pakistan ? actually all the original documents are with me now.

    • Junaid

      Naveed,
      If you’ve got the visa already then I would suggest you send it back to Pakistan as there’s more chance they will ask for it there than here in KSA. The procedure ends here as soon as the visa is granted.

  • Naveed Mahmood

    Sir, after printing the paper, i have to go to CoC, and they will not stamp it without my HR manager’s signature. then what should i do?.

    • Yousuf

      what profession do you have on your iqama? you must take the kafeel stamp and
      signature

      • Naveed Mahmood

        sir my profession is “Computer Programmer”.

  • Muhammad Wahab

    • Abdul Shukoor

      Medical test report, medical insurence card and your iqama go to Zuwazat office they will issue the Iqama of your wife free of charge

      • Edwin

        To Mr Shukoor, how about for kid with 11 years old? it is compulsary to undergo medical test to issue iqama?

        • Abdul Shukoor

          I think no medical test but insurence card must

      • Binoy Sebastian

        Thanks for reply. Is there any application form to fill up to submit at jawasat? Children 3 years and 5 years need finger print or need to take photo anything like that?

        • Abdul Shukoor

          Yes one application form to be fill in Arabic, out side office some Arabic speaking people filling form with nominal charges. I think children of such ages not required finger print

  • Shaikh

    Dear Expert,
    i went on exit and returned back on a new visa. During my exit i had taken the exit paper which was supposed to be presented when stamping my new visa in India. My family was with me earlier and they also went back with me. Now when i am trying to process new family visa the agent is asking for family exit paper which has been misplaced.
    Can you please advise if exit paper is necessary for family visa stamping? if it is required how can i get a duplicate copy?

    • Abdul Shukoor

      Now your Iqama No is diffirent you did not require exit paper if your profession eligible for family visa apply through online. For online submission read above article carefully.if misplaced your exit paper having photo copy than try from juwazat from where your exit paper you get.

  • Ghazala

    Dear Saudi Expert,

    I was applied for family visa online, when i adding family name it was giving 4 boxes and my wife name is in two words and in the next two boxes when i put dashes its not accepted for next dependent. so i added her father name as per passport. let me know is it correct filling her father name in other two boxes. visa is issued.

    Kindly let me know any problem will be there while stamping.

    • You need to put dash in the middle two boxes. Kindly visit the isitiqdam and get it corrected. It is MUST that the name on passport and on visa should match. Or else, you may face problems.

    • Kobe Sukrie

      Dear Nafraz, I had this problem before and it solved now. when you put your family name in the box, put only one word for each box. you cannot put more than 1 word because the box cannot recognize the space. I tried this and it works.

      • Nafraz Cader

        Thank you so much Kobe… It worked for me successfully.
        May Allah bless you

        • Kobe Sukrie

          Welcome Nafraz..glad to help you..

          • Kobe Sukrie

            Hai Shafeeq..my advice is to follow name as per passport. because any process later they will refer to your wife passport to check the details (name, passport number etc). You may also call the MOI helpdesk (8007490000) to confirm on this. Thank you

      • Nafraz Cader

        Now, what’s my next step? Do I have to take any certificates to chamber of commerce or only the application printed with signatures and stamp? please help

        • Kobe Sukrie

          Only the application printed with signatures and stamp is required. No certificate is required

          • Nafraz Cader

            Hi Kobe,
            I got my application stamped from COC. I read in the forum that they will keep the application and give us only a receipt. But they gave the original document with the stamp.
            This look strange to me, do you think I should visit COC personally and get the thafeel done? Or should I wait for few days and see.

          • Kobe Sukrie

            Yes they should keep the original document and give you the receipt only. Once get the receipt you shall receive an sms mention your visa number, and you may check the same visa number in your abshir account and status as “approved”. If the status still “submitted”, you need go back to CoC and check with them on this issue.

  • Ayyappan

    IF YOU ARE FACING THIS ERROR ”SOME ERROR HAPPENED WHILE PROCESSING YOUR REQUEST, PLEASE TRY AGAIN LATER OR CONTACT HELP DESK” you can solve this issue. just enter the dependents name by diving the name in 4 columns ( for example name is ABCDEF IJKLMN then devide this ABC DEF IJK LMN ) . i mean there should not be any space (or even – ) in any name box. and also in the Degree box
