When can you extend visit visa in KSA?
The first day you can extend the visa is the first day of the last seven days. You can calculate the date of the earliest day you can extend the visa by this formula: expiry date minus 6 days.
The day when the visa expires is included in the last seven days, therefore you won't be able to extend if you do the math as expiry date minus 7. For example, if your visa expires on the 10th, the earliest date you can extend is the 4th, right after midnight
