    Wa AleKom As Salam MI SADIQ, Yes as from now they have implemented the same law which had been imposed in the central riyadh region , all you have to do is ,fill a new application online on the MOFA website, and just wait for the result , you do not need to approach MOFA unless told or shown on the status of your application , for now i have checked your Iqama & File Number, it hasent been deposited in the MOFA, so i would advice you to re-apply once again & wait for the good news InshaAllaah!

    Mubarak for the Visit Visa of ur wife , Allahamdulliha , but first of all i would really like to appreciate Brother Baba Khan for advicing and utilizing his Online time for such a supportive and helpful advices regarding obvious curiosity and the constant fear of the way the local authorities handle the paper work specially for Expats , atleast we back home bribe ( we can say reward for the favour he/she does to complete our legal halal work) but here they dont even consider that just kidding.
    Baba Khan i have seen your profile its really confusing me with your two personalities , one u seems to be too religious and the same time u seems to be a regular teenage guy who doesnt care the world lol hahaha hope u r catching my point . I really appreciate for the smiles ur answer can bring to some stranger on the other side of the net , May almighty fulfill all your rightful wishes.

    Regarding my query , i was really dissopointed untill i saw brother MI SADIQ Post , mine is a similar case

    Actually last year i had approched directly at visa office in dammam and within 15 days approx i got the visit visa but this time as i am in riyadh and my sponser is from dammam i went to COC Dabbab street , there they have a counter for mofa where the visit visa can be submitted , First i went straight to this MOFA counter with my online application+Salary Certificate+Iqama Copy+Spouse PP+Daughter pp but he told me to go to the Fax Counter of COC , to get verify the signature of the sponser, i was little afraid and thought they will reject it becos on application i had no sign of my sponser but last year i had submitted without his sign on application
    anyway it was not an issue after an hour they gave me with a stamp on both the letters allahamdulliha and i came back to the mofa counter he checked and gave back all the docs with an additional 25 riyal Computer receipt without any comments
    but since than i can see on Visa Status page " Request submitted to Dammam Branch"

    So till today i was afraid if i did a mistake of not submitting the docs to the mofa main office in Nasriya, i did send my admin manager to Nasriya and as expected u know this saudi officers half knowledge or Mood based answers , they told my admin manager that my docs are to be submitted in Dammam , Very sad that guy didnt not bothered to see that already Mofa has a branch counter in COC and COC checks the docs for people from other regions verifies them by faxing to the regional offices of COC and attest it .
    But allahamdulliha after seeing Brother Sadiq case i keep a postive mind set for my visit visa and inshallah i will update the status
    In Case Brother Baba khan can give any imp inputs if any regarding my case i will really appreciate
    Sorry for writing in detail but belive me there are many among us who can be very happy to read any case in detail

    Hope the Saudi govt understands the problem of expats and make things easier ,simple
    After all we are working here and would love to see our families with us.
    May Almighty make things easy for people who are suffering in any way

    Family Visa

    posted by  g 100f in Saudi Arabia forum 

    Hi All,

    I am really glad to see that there is a solidarity between expatriates as well as Saudi citizens who are more knowledgeable about the immigration law and who are kind enough to spent their personal time in order to help others. That is such a noble task and I commend them all of them.

    I am not yet in Saudi Arabia, but should be arriving soon on a 90-day multiple entry business visit visa. I would like to ask you for your assistance and advice. What would be the normal steps to bring my wife and child to Saudi and how long will that take.

    I have already done extensive research on the internet, however, I would appreciate if you share your ideas.

    Regards to all!

    Visit Visa For My wife

    posted by  Wasim R in Saudi Arabia forum 

    Dear Baba,

    Assalamualaikkum. May allah accept all ur good deeds. Im rlly impressed with the efforts you are putting in answering most of the queries. Congrats fr that.
    I have a query fr u. I am working with one of the major IT company here & wants to bring my wife on visit visa. My company will take care of applying it online & submitting all required documents, so no tension there. The info i required is, once my application is approved online & i hve got the yellow slip, is there any duration before which i need to submit my Wife's passport in India? My Wife has got sme xams in India & her travelling dates are not yet fixed, i know for a fact tat once visit visa is stamped, she has to travel within 30 days. But is there any rule that once visa application is approved, visa should be stamped within this many days? Your reply on this is highly appreciated.

    visit Visa

    posted by  Shiraz Jauffer in Saudi Arabia forum 

    Salaams brother baba,first of all thank you very much for guiding expats like us with your service. I have a problem too and hope you'll be able to help.

    I applied for a visit visa for my mother through my company. The visited the istiqdam and got me a white and green sleip and said it was approved. But there were many misakes in the name as it did not match the name in the passport. The office then asked me to fill in the online appiication with the correct name and give it to them so that they will submit that along with the green slip to MOFA and the error will be corrected. I did this and the application was recieved my MOFA on the 27th of December. Until now, I am checking the site and it still the status shows "Application Received" + the date. I am here with my family and I wanted my mother to be here urgently. My iqama position is "Computer Technician" (Fanni Haasib Ali) so I don't think that should be a problem. Can you please help me on this?
