The General Directorate of Passports stated that work on extending the validity of iqama and exit re-entry is done automatically in collaboration with the National Information Center (NIC), and that no communication with Jawazat departments is required for this extension.
After January 31, 2022, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be responsible for automatically extending the validity of visit visas for visitors from suspended countries who are facing a travel ban and are outside the Kingdom to ten days.
It is important to note that the duration of an exit re-entry visa is valid for 3 months for travel from the date of issuance, unless the duration is specified in months such as 60, 90, or 120 days, in which case the duration is calculated from the date of travel; however, if the duration is specified in days or return before, the calculation is made from the date of issuance.
