Family Visit Visa Process

Please follow up this article on my new blog

Saudi Arabia Expatriates

I am not writing on this blog. Please follow above link to follow. Thanks…


Following are the steps and procedures which are required to get Family Visit Visa.

I have divided this process into two phases.First Applying for the visa (being in Saudi Arabia) and Second is Applying for Visa Stamping from your Home Country.

Phase 1: Applying Visa


  1. Your iqama copy.
  2. Your passport copy (info page,visa page,entry page)
  3. Marriage certificate and Degree( original and arabic translation. Attested from Foreign Office of Home Country,also if you could get this attested from Saudi Embassy of Home Country that would be good)


  1. Letter from your employer describing your profession and salary.
  2. Visa Application form filled in arabic.Normally company government relation officer does this sort of stuff.(you can check with your company for this otherwise you can download this form and get this filled from any arabic literate person).
  3. Visa applicatin form should be stamped/signed by your sponsor(kafeel,company) and also you need to sign it as well.
  4. Get these documents ( pre-requisites + Letter + Visa Application Form) and make one file.
  5. Visit istihdam office in your city and apply for the visa.
  6. They will issue you a white paper which is a step 1 of the final 2 step process.
  7. Now ask your company/sponser to apply for visa in Foreig Ministry on basis of the white paper you have got.They will fill an online form and give you another print out with the application number printed on it.
  8. Final step is to collect this printout and attach the white paper you got from Istihdam office and submit it in Ministry of Foreign Affairs.(note: keep one copy of the printout with you as this contains application number which you need to track oninline your visa status after submitting with Foreign Ministry)
  9. It will take 3/5 days before the visa status will be visible online on keep checking this link ( to see status of visa.Once you see the page with all the information. Now you can start processing from your home country.

Phase 2: Processs to apply for Visa stamping from Home Country

Documents to apply for visa stamping:

  1. Visa printout from
  2. Original passport ( of the visitor)
  3. Marriage certificate (original)
  4. Return Ticket.
  5. 3 Passport size photograph with white background.

Look for any agent who (in pakistan you can apply through which will apply for visa stamping from Saudi Embassy. It will take 3/5 days to complete this process.

      Dear Mr. Khurramshahzad

      I want bring my wife to saudi arabia in permanent family visa. in my Igama my profession is Electrecian ican elegible for permanent family visa .please send me the details.

      sundara raman

  3. khurramshahzad Says:

    Dear Masood,

    Regarding Visa Fee (in case of permanent family visa) you can submit SR 2000 in Riyadh Bank either way:

    1. Online:
    For this you should have an account with Riyadh Bank.After paying online you should get a print out of the transaction to attach with your file.

    2. Visiting Riyadh Bank Branch:
    You would have to visit any Riyadh Bank branch to submit this fee and get a receipt to attach with the file.

    Hope this would help…

    If this is for all nationals ?

  5. QamarAzam Says:

    Dear Masood,
    I am going to call my second wife from Pakistan. My first wife was dead in road accident 6 months before. I have 2 kids one is 3 years and other is 5 years old.Both are in Pakistan and having valid visas also. Now I will also follow the same procedure as you mentioned above, means I have to pay SR-2000 for get new visa or previous visa can be transfer into new one. I really very disturb and not understand what to do. Please kindly help me in this regard. God will bless you.

    • khurramshahzad Says:

      Dear Qamar,

      I guess you would have to process this as new permanent visa and would have to pay for 2K SR for your second wife visa. (as i am not sure i will confirm and will update the reply at my earliest).

  6. QamarAzam Says:

    sorry I mentioned wrong name the above attention person was Khurram Shehzad or any one who can give me reply.

  7. Baker Says:

    Hai. Assalamu alaikum, what is the terms and condition of a holder of a labor profession in Iqama and privet service in the passport to get a visiting visa to his family. could u explain

    thanks and regards

  8. Qamar Azam Says:

    Dear Khurram Shehzad,

    Thank you very much for your reply. I will wait for your advise. You’r doing such a good job which can not be explain in words.

    Again Thank you very much and God Bless You.

  9. Baker Says:

    Dear Khurram, wassalam, could u expain what is the minimum procedure to get a saudi visiting visa for family and also the salary level.
    your rsponse will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks and regards


    • khurramshahzad Says:

      Dear Baker,

      The main criteria for any type of visa whether visit or permanent is the profession mentioned on your iqama.If you bear a labor profession on your iqama then you are not eligible to bring your family on any of visas. If you have a profession like doctor,engineer,programmer, etc with related degrees you can bring your family on any visa i.e. visit or permanant.This all is based on iqama profession and not on salary limit.If you are earning 5k or 6k SR but are on labor visa then you still cannot bring your family.
      Hope this would help..

      • Mahboob Alam Says:

  55. sabu Says:

    the steps for visiting visa is noted ..but is it the same for permanent visa..? ’cause in the mofa website i could’nt find the application form for permanent visa or is it the same..? i would pay 2k and attch with the same application ? hpe u can help me..thanks.

    • khurramshahzad Says:

      For permanent visa it is different. First of all you need to go to istikhdam office not MOFA. also you need to submit 2k for visa fee through riyadh bank. You need your attested degrees and marriage certificate and a letter from your employer which should mentioned your salaray.

      i will write a detailed post on permanent visa procedure in a week insha Allah on my latest blog site

    I am palning to take Visit visa for my wife in India. you have given a clear procedure for how to proceed. Thank you. Sir, I have two questions 1. after geting the visa slip here in saudi, within how many days the visa should be stamped in the passort in India. 2. after the stamping of the visit visa in the spouse passport within how many days she has to depart from the native palce (india). What i want you to clarify is, after the stamping of visa, is there any validity or minimum/maximum days that the visa should be used(not the visa validity).

    More and more people worry about how the cold in the winter
    will affect them and whether central heating installation really is the answer to being able to
    always afford to stay warm when it is cold outside. It’s the time when many of my patients come to me complaining of certain symptoms that they think may be the flu. You can use fluorescent lighting for your office or use energy-efficient bulbs.
