    Dear Sheikh Murshad , The extension of a valid visa visa can be renewed only before 2 or 3 days prior from the date of expiration , and only under recommended situations you can get extensions till 1 year and 3 months (15 months), otherwise the allowed period is 9 months only ,to enlighten you further if your expiration date falls in the days of a weekend don't hesitate to walk over on these days , because the passport dept has a special counter that operates even on weekends for the extensions of visit visas.i hope that helps in solving your query .

    Visit Visa Renewal

    posted by  Hasnain Khan in Saudi Arabia forum 

    Please note that visit visa renewal is a simple process.

    First important thing to note is that do not go for renewal if more than 5 days are left in the expiry of the visa as the chances are very high that the person in charge there in Jawazat Office will ask you to come only when 4 to 5 days are left in the expiry of the visit visa.

    In Khobar - Dammam Area, visit visa renewal is done in teh Jawazat Office in Dammam. The location of Jawat Office is near to the Dammam Stadium (about 2 to 3 km). If you are going from Khobar to Dammam on the Khobar Dammam Highway, take a right turn just prior to the Stadium. Then keep on driving straight about 1.5 kms and you will see Panda on your left. Take a left turn and go about 400 meters; there is a cut on the road , take a further left and you will see a lot of open land with many cars parked. Park the car there and you are in front of the Jawazat Office.

    You will find many agents sitting on small desks outside the jawazat office. (You should go in to jawazat in the morning hours). They will fill the form for you and also they will also transfer visa fee (SAR 100 per passport) to Al-Rajhi Bank by using their mobile. They will charge a very minimal fee for this. You need to have original passport, your Iqama copy, Passport's front and back copy with you. Add teh application form filled up in Arabic and Visa Fee transfer reciept and your form is complete.

    As you enter jawazat office, you will find a table in the left where a policeman is issuing token to everyone. Please keep in mind that the Arabic word for visa extension is " Tamdeed Tashirah". Tell the policeman this word and collect one token for yourself. Now leave the place, you have to come back at 4 PM in the evening.

    In teh evening, all the office will be closed except for the area where visit visa extension is done. This is towards the right sade of the jawazat office. Many people, mostly Asian will be sitting there. Officials will call people by their token number. When your turns comes, go and deposit the original pasport along with the application form.

    After few minutes, depending upon the rush, you will be called and the passport with extension stamp marked on it with new visa expiry date written by hand, will be handed over to you.

    That's it!
