The General Directorate of Passports (Jawazat) in KSA revealed the position of renewing the iqama of a resident for those who are outside of the Kingdom.
This came in response to a question received on Twitter account, asking, “Can I renew the iqama of my dependent who has gone back and forth to study while he is abroad (outside of Saudi Arabia)?”
The official Twitter account of Saudi Jawazat responded it, saying: “You can renew the iqama of a resident for those outside the Kingdom electronically after paying the required fees through a payment service and through the Absher platform or a muqeem of the employer”
Earlier this, Jawazat reminded that an expat must leave Saudi Arabia within 60 days from the date of issuing final exit visa.
In case of not leaving within the specified time limit, a fine of 1000 Riyals will be imposed to cancel the final exit visa, stating that iqama validity is a condition when canceling the final exit.
