    Parent Visit Visa.

    posted by  Muhammad Kamran Syed in  Saudi Arabia forum 06 Nov 2012, 07:53

    I've applied for my parents Visit Visa on Monday 05th November 2012 through MOFA website and took a printout of the Application Form.

    Application No: XXXXXX
    ID No: XXXXXXXX

    I am not sure about what is the next step. I discussed it with my PRO, he stamped the Application form and mentioned that you need to attest this application form from Chamber of Commerce. What else is required afterwards I am not sure about this and infact a bit confused.

    On a website I read that after applying through MOFA I've to get the form stamped from my employer and Chamber of Commerce and then submit it to MOFA office. But the PRO is saying there is no need for that. If I don't need to submit it anywhere then why I've to sign it and get it stamped from employer and commerce?

    Can you guide me on the exact process and documents required?

    Thanks for the reply I'll do that. But could you please let me know what I should be checking on MOFA website? For example when the status is changed what should I do then? Is there any fees to be submitted if yes then how?

    Enter your visa application number from the form you got signed and stamped and the iqama id no. you entered on the form as well on this link :

    https://visa.mofa.gov.sa/%5CSrhComFamilyVisa.asp

    Check to see if they call you to MOFA, when they do take the signed and stamped form with you to them along with ur parents passport copies and pics maybe .. i'm not sure exactly but they will state what they require of you.

    I've heard that for time being MOFA are not processing the visas because of Haj seasons. Any idea if they are processing it now? if not then when they'll start?

    Also legally is't OK to perform Umrah on Visit Visa. Because the Terms on Visa request says, you shouldn't.

    Yeah i have been told that the online system is not generating the necessary form which provides you with the visa application number and ultimately which you print to have it signed and stamped. I guess wait a few days until the Hajj season passes. Or you can always try and apply manually at the istiqdams office which i did and is usually more reliable than the online method .. where they can reject for any reason without telling you what it is!

    And i think Umra is doable on the visit visa ... though the terms might say otherwise .. but you can probably get away with it without any issues.

    Submitted the form

    posted by  Muhammad Kamran Syed in  Saudi Arabia forum 07 Nov 2012, 08:18

    I've submitted the application on MOFA site and printed out the form, get it signed by the company and went to Chamber of Commerce for attestation. They took the form, check my Iqamah and then gave me a receipt which is the payment receipt for visa attestation and kept the form I got signed by my employers. Wanted to know is't okay? do they normally keep the form with them or should they return it to me after attestation? I thought they'll return the form to me? It's difficult to talk to them since they don't understand english and my Arabic is as good as my Japaneese :) (which is offcourse not good at all).
