How long does it take to get an exit visa?

Hi all - I'm an English teacher who recently resigned within my 90 day probationary period, and I'm currently waiting for my exit visa. I have been informed that the company I worked for will often wait a month before submitting the paperwork as a form of "punishment" for resigning. I've already been waiting around in Riyadh for a week and I heard the visa actually only takes a day to turn around. Is this true? If so, can anyone give me any suggestions on how to speed the process along? Or am I completely at their mercy? Any advice will be greatly appreciated it!

It takes hardly 1 week depends on your employer how quick they can process. Once you have a exit you have to leave kingdom within 60 days.

Thank you for the info. I actually received my exit visa today after some time in their office. Now I'm just waiting on my final salary. Fingers crossed!

Good Evening

If a comapny wants to it can get a final exit visa for you in 1 day !!!

However as you have mentioned they will delay as a 'punishment'

Good Luck
