Return Iqama Card to Jawazat Is Must if Not Coming Back on Re-Entry

According to Jawazat, Residents and Citizens must present the Passport Department with the Iqama / Muqeem cards of their employees or dependents who have not returned to Saudi Arabia before the visa expiry date in order to avoid fines.

The Muqeem cards of those who have been sponsored must be presented to the Passport Department within 30 days of the expiry date of the exit-reentry visa expiration date.

 

The department will change the status of the visa to ‘Exited, did not return’ and will mean that employers and expats will avoid legal liability and fines.
