Visa Extension Simplified

Saudi Arabia’s General Directorate of Passports is taking steps to streamline the process of extending visit visas in the Kingdom.

This change aims to eliminate the need for individuals to physically visit passport offices.

  2. Muqeem Electronic Portal: Another efficient option for extending visit visas is the Muqeem electronic portal. This portal serves as an accessible, user-friendly interface to facilitate the visa renewal process.

By embracing these electronic channels for visa extensions, travelers can ensure they remain in compliance with visa regulations and enjoy a hassle-free experience without the need for physical visits to passport offices.
