Jawazat allows extension of Visit Visa beyond 180 days

Jawazat allows extension of all types of visit visas to the people who are already inside Saudi Arabia. The decision has been taken after a 15 days suspension on international flights has taken place in Saudi Arabia. 

Family Visit Visa holders

In this way, people who are in Saudi Arabia on a family visit visa would be able to extend their visa through the Absher system up to 180 days.

In case of extension beyond 180 days, the sponsor will have to visit Jawazat to extend their visa manually.

The extension beyond 180 days will be given only if your family visit visa is about to expire by the 30th of March.

It should be noted that the extension can only be made after paying the fee for the extension of the visit visa.

Tourist Visa

People who are inside Saudi Arabia on a tourist visa can visit any Jawazat office to extend their tourist visa beyond 90 days.

Business Visit Visa

The sponsors can log in to their systems to extend Business Visit Visa. In case their system does not work, they will also have to visit the Jawazat office.

Jawazat confirmed that work is being done in coordination with the National Information Center to include the exceptional extension service of the visitor visa within the electronic services provided through Absher.
