We shall not describe the procedure to apply for it from the Ministry of Interior as your sponsor knows about it very well.
Chamber of Commerce: The 5-year multiple entry business visa of Saudi Arabia needs to be attested by the chamber of commerce of the city in which registered office of the sponsor is registered.
We have listed down some important points for attestation of documents from Chamber of Commerce. I would recommend you to read them before personally visiting the chamber of commerce.
However, it is important to mention here that the 5-year multiple entry business visa number should not start from 7. It should be a 2 or 4. It depends upon the industry from which the sponsor belongs to.
Visa Duration: 5-year multiple entry business visa of Saudi Arabia is issued for 1800 days but stay at one time cannot exceed 180 days. It means visa holder will have to get out of Kingdom within 180 days of his arrival to Saudi Arabia.
The Fee for Visa: However, he can enter back to Saudi Arabia even the next day of his departure. The same terms should be written on the letter of invitation of the sponsor. The fee for 5 years Multiple Entry Business visa for U.S. Citizens is SR 400.
Letter of Invitation should be directed either to New York Consulate or Washington DC Embassy. The reason for your stay in Saudi Arabia should be written on the letter of invitation.
It should be attested by the Chamber of Commerce as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Saudi Arabia.
Procedure to Apply for 5 Year Multiple Entry Business Visa in the United States
Up to now, you did not have to face any problem but there can be some complications in the processing of 5-year multiple entry business visa of Saudi Arabia in the United States.
So, it is always better to hire the services of some agent in this regard. Your sponsor may assign some agent to you or you may have to hire him yourself.
An application needs to be filled and submitted online to the Saudi Embassy in the USA using Enjaz system.
But believe me; filling application on Enjaz can be very tricky so it is better to leave it to the experts to fill it. Your hired agent will take care of all this in the United States and soon you will be in Saudi Arabia.
