Exit re-entry visas of expats outside the kingdom can be extended online – Jawazat

The General Directorate of Passports (Jawazat) has clarified that exit reentry visas of those expatriates outside the Kingdom can be extended online through their Sponsor’s Absher or Muqeem platforms.

Jawazat’s clarification came in response to queries about the possibility of renewing the exit and re-entry visa by the employer in the event that the worker has been outside the Kingdom for over ten months following the temporary ban of international flights and closure of borders since March 2020.
