How to Check Your Saudi Visa Status by Passport Number

Are you planning to visit Saudi Arabia on a work visa and want to know your visa stamping status, visa number, and other details such as sponsor name or occupation? You are in the right place. In this article, we explore two simple ways to find out your work visa details and stamping status.

Checking Your Visa Issuance Status and Number

Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) has launched a new visa portal, “KSA Visa,” to simplify the visa process. Here’s how to use this portal to check your visa stamping status. To find out your work visa details such as visa profession and sponsor name, you need to have your visa number. Here is how you can find out your visa stamping status and visa number using your passport number and application number:

  • Visit the KSA Visa portal:
  • On the homepage, you’ll find the “track application” option in the top panel. Click on it
  • Enter your visa application number in the top field, which you can find on the visa document (e.g., E576542456)
  • Enter your passport number in the second field.
  • Click on the “Track My Application” button to proceed.

If your visa is issued, a popup will appear stating “Visa has been issued, No. xxxxx.” This means your visa has been issued, and the number displayed is your visa number. You can check further details of your visa by following these steps:
