Saudi Arabia | Residence Visas extended to 5 years

Saudi Arabia | Residence Visas extended to 5 years

5th Dec 2014

Saudi Arabia is planning to extend the new Residence Visas (Iqamas) to 5 years instead of the 1 year presently offered.

The Directorate General of Passports (Jawazat) is working on the final stages of plans to put this into action and will also change the name of the visa from Iqama to Resident ID.

This change is welcome as it will mean more job security for expatriate workers with longer employment contracts. It is also expected to make the Kingdom more attractive to foreign investors.
