Expat residents in Saudi Arabia require an exit re-entry visa to leave the kingdom temporarily. Exit re-entry visas can be obtained electronically thru Absher or the Muqeem portal. The Jawazat has clarified the minimum required validity of a resident’s passport for obtaining an exit re-entry visa.
Minimum Passport Validity for Exit/Re-Entry Visa
According to Jawazat, for an exit re-entry visa to be issued, a minimum of 90 days of passport validity is required. In addition, the Iqama of the applicant must be valid.
The other prerequisites for issuing exit re-entry visas are that there should be no outstanding traffic fines, the visa fee must be deposited on the applicant’s Iqama number, and the applicant must be physically present in Saudi Arabia.
Additionally, the applicant’s fingerprints must be registered with Jawazat systems to be issued an exit re-entry visa.
The fee for a single exit re-entry visa for two months is SAR 200, and SAR 100 for each additional month. The cost of a multiple re-entry visa is SAR 500 for a maximum period of three months.
