JEDDAH; SOME EXPATS WITH COMFORTING NEWS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE RETURNED HOME FROM SAUDI ARABIA ON RE-ENTRY AND WHOSE RETURN HAS BEEN DELAYED DUE TO CORONA.  IT IS LEARNED THAT THE OPPORTUNITY TO RENEW THE IQAMA IS NOW BEING PREPARED, JUST AS THE SYSTEM THROUGH ABSHIR AND MUQEEM HAS BEEN SET UP TO RENEW THE RE-ENTRY VISAS OF NON-SAUDIS FROM WITHIN SAUDI ARABIA.

AT THE SAME TIME, IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT THIS SYSTEM IS CURRENTLY ONLY AVAILABLE IN MUQEEM AND HAS NOT YET BEEN ACTIVATED IN ABSHIR.  THE FACT THAT THE SPONSOR CAN RENEW THE IQAMAS OF THOSE WHO HAVE GONE ON LEAVE BY PAYING IQAMA FEES AND LEVIES MAY COME AS A RELIEF TO MANY EXPATRIATES WHO ARE NOT AUTOMATICALLY COVERED BY THE RENEWAL SYSTEM.  AT THE SAME TIME, JAVASAT HAS NOT YET MADE ANY OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT IN THIS REGARD. WHEN JAVASAT WAS ASKED ABOUT THIS, HE REPLIED THAT THE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO HAD GONE ON LEAVE COULD BE RENEWED THROUGH ABASHIR.

IN ADDITION, JAVASAT IS STILL REPEATING THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT THE IQAMAS AND RE-ENTRY OF THOSE WHO ARE UNABLE TO RETURN DUE TO CORONA WILL BE RENEWED AUTOMATICALLY. IN ANY CASE, IT IS EXPECTED THAT JAVASAT WILL MAKE AN OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE COMING DAYS.
