  1. What if your banned finished before the law implemented. Banned from saudi last August 2013 and that time the law is only 2 years banned about exit re entry visa so if i want to go back to saudi there is no problem if im finished with 2 years banned not 3 years .. because my banned finished before new law implemented.

  2. I had first gone to saudi in june 2013, and came back on final exit on sept 2015, i returned on new visa in dec 2015. Unfortunately the new company terminated my contract with 3 months and i returned to india in feb 2016.
    As i now try to get a new visa stamped, the saudi consulate in saudi has rejected my application stating that i came back within six months of going on new visa. What are my options now, how can i get my visa stamped

  3. A company in Saudi Arabia offered me a permanent visa which is expired. My question is If a new visa which is not yet used is expired, whether the company can use it for a new employee… ?

    Is expired new visa can be used for me.

  4. Some one left for final exit could he return by newvisa

  5. IF ONE LEAVES SAUDI ARABIA ON FINAL EXIT he can come on new visa, up till now there are no restrictions on going back from saudi arabia on final exit and coming again on new visa.

    If some one leaves saudi arabia on exit reentry visa, and does not return, he will be banned for three years for any work visa

  6. Is restriction / 3 years ban still valid for personnel Coming back to Same Sponsor

  7. Hello Dears.
    Requesting your correct answers for the same.

    My Family is India gone for Exit re entry validity of 06 months. In the 11th Dec 2016, Finally single exit re-entry visa is going to expire. Although my Family IQAMA is going to Expire by 25th August 2017.
    Due to some family circumstances my family will not come for another 06 months.

    1. What is the procedure to extension of Single re-entry visa??
    2. When i will initiate the process of extension??
    3. How many months more my family can stay as per rule in India after expiration of VISA.
    4. On same VISA my family can come or not?

    • for Extension of family visa process is you should try online process from MOFA instead of manual process becoz i did manual process but they reject from Mumbai by remarking that my family is over stay . But i don’t understand the logic behind that , online i saw the duration is 7 months after expiry of you exit re entry , and these 7 months will count after date of expiry of exit re entry. Any how i am facing same problem.

    • Hi Kamal Firoz,
      Any luck, Did u tried to bring your family back?

  10. Hi. I just want to ask, last december 2016 we went back to our home country because our contract ended but our company provided us only exit/ re entry visa (we were fooled by our company, we were given exit re entry instead of exit visa). we have experience certificate indicating that we finish our contract. are we still eligible to enter the kingdom under a different employer? thanks.
