According to Okaz’s instructions, the total extension of the family visa cannot be exceeded 180 days.

The Jawazat stressed that the instructions require compliance with visa and exit checks before the visa expires, as its validity is a condition of exit.

The Jawazat clarified that those wishing to issue a visit visa must contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOPED).

On Tuesday, August 23, the Ministry of Education announced that children of foreign nationals illegally staying in Saudi Arabia will be allowed to enroll in schools for the new school year.
