Saudi Arabia extends residency, exit-entry visas

The Saudi passport authorities started automatically extending the validity of residency permits (Iqama) and exit and re-entry visas free of charges until 31 March 2022, SPA reported.

The extension is part of the Kingdom’s efforts to address the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It will be carried automatically in collaboration with the National Information Center, without the need to visit the passports directorate or the Kingdom’s missions abroad.

The validity of residency and exit re-entry return visas will be extended for residents who are outside the Kingdom in countries from which travel was suspended due to a COVID-19 outbreak, except for those who have already received one dose of the vaccine inside the Kingdom before departure.

The validity of visit visas will also be extended for visitors in countries from which entry has been suspended due to the virus.
