How to change marital status in Absher?

Many expatriates who want to apply for a family visit visa or a permanent family visa want to know if they need to change marital status in Absher before applying for the visa.

Before applying for the family visit visa or a permanent family visa, the marital status on your Absher account will be “Single” and the good thing is that you don't have to adjust it.

Marital Status on Passport

In order to process a family visit visa or a permanent family visa, the marital status on the wife's passport should be “Married” with the husband's name written on it.

I know the marital status is not written on passports but as long as the name of the husband is written, the marital status is considered to be married.
