How to Extend Expired Saudi Family Visit Visa?
Saudi Expat asked a query regarding the extension of expired Saudi family visa,
Note that I, my wife, entered the Kingdom on February 9th, with a multiple family visit visa, which ended on May 9th. Is it covered by the new royal decisions to extend the residence period of 3 months?
هل تم تحديد آلية تنفيذ القرارات الملكيه الخاصه بتمدير مدة الإقامة لتأشيرات الزياره؟ علما بأن انا زوجتي دخلت المملكه في 9 فبراير الماضي بتأشيرة زياره عائليه متعدده وانتهت في 9 مايو . هل هي مشموله بالقرارات الملكيه الجديده الخاصه بتمديد مدة الإقامه 3 أشهر ؟
