VISIT VISAS 100% Online

visit visa online (2)
Soon Expatriates will be able to issue Visit Visa for Saudi Arabia for their family members completely online. As per Arab News, there will be no need to visit any government for the process of application. The article failed to clarify if the visit to Chamber of Commerce is still required or there will be online method to pay for the fee.
Currently, expatriates can apply visit visa for their relatives online on MOFA website and then take a print and get it attested by Chamber of Commerce (CoC). Within 3 to 10 days, the status of visa – if it is approved or rejected is updated on the website.
In order to avoid rejection, the name and details of expatriates should be clearly entered on the website as it is mentioned in the iqama and the details of the those who are visiting should match those of their passport.
The applicants of the visit also need to take responsibility for accommodation, medical insurance of the visitor and ensure that the visitor leaves the country before expiry of visa, failing which strict penalties apply.

    Dear Sir,

    My company is not authorizing visit visa for my wife also. Permanent visa is far dream. Does the above online process will eliminate the steps of authorization by the Sponsor(Company) for the VISIT VISA(not talking about IQAMA or permanent visa)..thanks

    • ilyas

      Sorry to hear this brother ….. but I’m sure it is not possible to get visit visa as employer need to stamp and sign on online filled visa application ( COC will see authorized signature if company representative ).

      If this stamping process not there from employer I think all will enjoy online visa process

    • Rehan

      Yes dear you can extend any visit visa under your sponsorship via MOI website.
      first you have to pay the SR100 against the entry number written by the Immigrations person near the entry stamp of the visitor passport.(since visitors have no iqama number so entry number is used to pay the fee) you can pay by your own atm or online banking under government fees.
      then just go to the MOI website you already registered and then go to passport and then extend visit visa. in last print the visa extension.

    • Irfan

      You can extend visit visa online by the same moi login credentials. But it does extension within 7 days of expiry. I did this personally

    • ilyas

      NO need dear just visit MOI log in and go to extend visit visa press proceed …. it will be renewed automatically ……… but kindly pay Sr. 100 each on BORDER # ( DAKHULIYA # ) i.e. entry # on passport, the payment can be done online
