You need exit re-entry or final exit visa to travel back to your country if you are an Iqama holder in Saudi Arabia. There are two types of exit re-entry visa available for expatriates living in Saudi Arabia namely single exit re-entry visa and multiple exit re-entry visas. Single exit re-entry visa allows you to travel out and coming back to Saudi Arabia only once. Once you have made this visit, single exit re-entry visa expires. We have already explained in one article the procedure to apply for single exit re-entry visa. However, on the other hand, multiple exit re-entry visa allows you to go out and enter back to Saudi Arabia as many times as you want within the validity of the multiple exit re-entry visa. Here in this article, I will be providing in detail the procedure to apply for multiple exit re-entry visas for your dependents online. If due to any reason the online system does not work, you can apply for multiple exit re-entry visa through the manual system. Recommended: Apply for Multiple Exit Re-Entry Visa through Istiqdam

A new screen will appear containing terms and conditions of the exit re-entry visa. You need to agree to the terms and conditions stated here. We have explained these terms below;
- Visa holder will have to travel within 3 months of issuing the visa. If he does not travel, a fine will be imposed. So, if your program of going abroad is changed, you should cancel your exit re-entry visa. There is no charge of canceling exit re-entry visa. However, if you don’t cancel it within the validity of the visa, a fine of SR 1,000 is imposed.
- If your family member has renewed the passport, new passport details would not be appearing on the MOI website. In such case, you need to contact Mandoob of your company to do “Naqal Maloomat” (Information Transfer)

In the next screen, there will be two options “Single” and “Multiple”. You need to select “Multiple” option there. Multiple exit re-entry visa is issued for 180 days only. You cannot reduce or increase its tenure. In the next page, System will just ask for your confirmation.
Although it is not required to print visa since no one on the Saudi airports demand it. But you should take a hard copy along with passport. If you don’t carry the hard copy, you may have to face some problems while coming back from your country. Immigration officers in your country may ask for the hard copy. However, you can check the status of exit re-entry visa online and show it to immigration officer if you have internet access on your mobile phone.
