Reentry visas to Saudi Arabia which were set to expire between February 25 and May 24 will be extended for three months without charge, according to orders from King Salman bin Abdulaziz.

This latest measure is aimed at reducing the economic impact of coronavirus restrictions. It allows expatriates who work in the commercial field and are already in the Kingdom to extend their visa while travel to and from the Kingdom is currently suspended.

The announcement added that the visas will be automatically extended by the General Directorate of Passports, so visa holders are not required to go to the office and manually renew.
