Re: extend visit visa

It used to be 1 year; but now is usually 6 months max. Extensions are given for month/2-months and will have to pay charge for each extension.

Re: extend visit visa

Nothing certain over here. Many factors (even the mood of the re-newing person) can change things. The rules change over-night here & mis-management gets funny sometimes. One of my friends has one extra wife and child on his iqama. No one knows who are they and how come they are appearing on his iqama :)

Re: extend visit visa

This is a little old for the original poster but ... Family visits are 90 days at a time maximum. You can extend twice to give you 270 days. But as TLL says, if they wake up on the wrong side of the bed it may not go in your favour :) Don't know the cost as company paid for it. Try Saudi gov or your embassy - even a visa agency.

Re: extend visit visa

Updates about rules:

1- Now they usually renew for a period equal to that of the original visa. Say the visit visa was for 3 months, they'll renew for 3 months more.... AGAIN: Not necessarily... :(

2- Some time back, the renewal were supposed to be sought from Passport department (Jawazat) special sub-sidiary called 'Tarheel' (Deportation dept....I guess would be the translation.). Now they have moved the dept to Jawazat main body.

A friend extended a visit visa yesterday from Jawazat main office in Riyadh. @Zeesham I trust the same must be for Al-Khobar as well.

Re: extend visit visa

you can renew twice if visa is 90 days, sometimes the visa is 30 days, this can be extended each month. However please note family visa visits are not extended after Ramadan.
New visa's are then available after Hajj season.

Re: extend visit visa

I had mine extended?? I had to do family visit the lasttime I was here and extanded it after Ramadan, It did take a little longer but it was still done (????)

The 30day visa ... isn't this something to do with the business visa, some friends had this and it was a big pain in the ass for them with two kids

Re: extend visit visa

Sorry Louise, didnt make it clear the Ramadan extension refusal is for Muslims. (The perception is that if Muslim visitiors are in the Kingdom after Ramadan they will then make plans for Hajj. Therefore extension after Ramadan for Muslims visitors is refused. The rules are that for Hajj the pilgrims must come from their home country).

There is a 30 days business visa from UK, however some family visitors (who's home country is not UK) are granted 30 day family visit visa. The visa duration is dependent on where you are coming from.

NOT AT ALL! @maryam, Avoid runing into huge penalty situation for overstaying (along with the blacklisting). Check with the officials asap.

Re: extend visit visa

What i have post is my experience,

thr is no hard n fast rule tat the visitor can stay for 9 months,
you can go Jawazat and apply for the extension,
they will put final exit stamp on your passport if further extension is not allowed.

Re: extend visit visa

9 months is the MAXIMUM period and I never heard anyone got extension more than that. So she's at a critical point.

On the other hand, I recall my friend got a penalty of 25,000 for his parents' overstay. We had to put a LOT of efforts at Airport to get it waived off. Had links with policemen, immigration officers and; the story ended with a sigh of relief....:happy:

Re: extend visit visa

Visitor Visa is allowed maximum 90 days.. After this you have to exit to your home country and apply new visa.

Come ON A_K,
Seems you didn't notice the context of the current discussion. @Maryam98 clearly said above that her mother was here since 9 months.

Re: extend visit visa

the maximum depend whether first visit visa stamp for 3 months or 2 months (3months x 3times)=9 months
(2months x 3times) =6months. If your lucky you will 3 months.
if you need to extend after 6months or 9months. Maximum 1 month you will get if you submit in Chamber of commerce the person cannot travel due to observation under medical treatment :P

Re: extend visit visa

It's called border number.

If you (or a friend) have an online account for SADAD payments, the fee can be deposited online.

for my parents they have given visa for 30 days only.. and it was renewed twice 30 days each.. so was a bad deal for me.. as everymonth I had to send passports to my govt agency guy and pay 500 SR (400 fee and 100 for him)/

I live in riyadh, and he gets it issued from Jeddah coz my iqama is frm jeddah. Any suggestions?
