Riyadh: Expatriates Have Been Relieved By The Home Ministry’s Move To Extend The Iqama And Re-entry Of From Saudi Arabia. Javasat Said There Was No Need To Rush Back To Saudi Arabia To Renew The Iqama Or Extend The Re-entry Period And That Steps Should Be Taken To Contact The Employer. The Facility Has Been Set Up On The Abshir And Mukhim Portals Of The Home Ministry.

Earlier In The Day, Home Minister Abdul Aziz Bin Saud Bin Naif Announced The Launch Of 12 Online Services, Including The Extension Of Iqama And Re-entry Of Expatriates In The Country. It Is Not Yet Possible For Expatriates To Return To Saudi Arabia After The Expiration Of Their Iqama. However, The Re-entry Period Could Have Been Temporarily Extended By Approaching The Saudi Consulate With The Documents Provided By The Sponsor. Trending :NEW SYSTEM FOR RECEIVING HOME WORKERS ARRIVING AT JEDDAH AIRPORT ON NEW VISAS AND RE-ENTRY

Companies And Other Institutions Have Long Needed An Online System To Extend The Term Of Iqama And Re-entry Of Foreigners. This Is Due To The Fact That Most Companies Face The Situation Of Having Their Visas Canceled If They Are Unable To Return To Their Home Country In Case Of An Emergency. Submission Of Documents Attested By Javasat And The Ministry Of External Affairs To The Consulate Would Extend The Re-entry Period But It Was Often Difficult. At The Same Time, If The Period Of Iqama Is Less Than Two Months, Re-entry Can Often Not Be Extended. All These Problems Have Been Solved With The New System.

This Is A Great Blessing For The Families Of The Workers. Families And Students Living In The Country Who Went On Re-entry Could Not Return Here On Time Due To Various Reasons. At The End Of The Re-entry Period, The Visa Is Renewed By The Consulate After Completing The Legal Process Along With The Required Documents. Students Were Not Allowed To Return To Saudi Arabia During The Re-entry Period If It Was Exam Time. Because Of This, Many Had Their Family Visas Revoked And Their Families Deported.
