Getting Family Visa in Saudi Arabia

How to Get Family Visa in Saudi Arabia - A Step by Step Guide fo

Everyone among expatriates who are working in Saudi Arabia and living without their families, is interested in having family visa for Saudi Arabia. Because it is not easy to survive in a location where you don’t have your relatives, friends, language mates etc.

Being an expatriate I have gone through this process so I would like to share the process of getting family visa so others can benefit.

Below are prerequisites  and procedures which are required to obtain a Family Visa in Saudi Arabia. This process is divided many steps to make it clear and understandable. Before thinking or proceeding in to this you must be aware that you are required to have a Valid Saudi Iqama, a Suitable Technical Profession that is eligible for applying a family visa as per Saudi Arabian labor laws. If you are not sure your profession is suitable for a family visa you may ask your company’s HR department, legal advisory or corporate representative.

.First Applying for the visa (being in Saudi Arabia) and Second is Applying for Visa Stamping from your Home Country.

Applying for Family Visa Pre-Requisites

Please gather these documents.

  1. Copy of Your iqama.
  2. Copy of Your passport which includes information page, Visa page, Airport Entry Stamp page.
  3. Original Marriage certificate that is attested by Saudi Consulate in your home country and Ministry of Foreign Affairs in your home country.
  4. Arabic Translation of Marriage Certificate from an approved Translation center located in Saudi Arabia.
  5. Graduation Degree or 3 Years Technical Diploma with attestation from Saudi Consulate in your home country and Ministry of Foreign Affairs in your home country.
  6. Arabic Translation of Degree from an approved Translation center located in Saudi Arabia.

Procedure for applying Family Visa

  • Get a Letter from your employer which is describing your Profession and salary.
  • Get a Visa Application form from HR Department of your company or nearest Istikdam Office or download it from Pro Saudi Blog, Fill the form in Arabic. Normally the Legal Advisor of your company should do this sort of stuff. (Get this form filled by any Arabic literate person).
  • The Family Visa application form should be stamped/signed by your sponsor(kafeel,company) and you.
  • Get these documents ( pre-requisites + Letter + Visa Application Form) and bind them in one file.
  • Visit Nearest Istikdam office in your city and apply for the visa. Further information can be gathered from the office itself.
  • Istikdam office clerk will issue you a Yellow paper which is actually a Family visa. If Istikdam office didn’t issue in the first appearance, he may give you a later time to come and collect it.
  • After Getting the Yellow paper you can start processing Family Visa from your home country through an agent.
How to get visa stamped in your home country can be discussed in future soon. Keep visiting our blog.

    Brother may ALLAH bless you, your doing such a great work of deed by guiding expats.

    Dear i have below few questions.

    Q1. that my Iqama and Kafeel is from Riy adh but im working in Mahail so i can also go to Mahail Istikdam office and apply for the visa or do i have to go to Riyadh and there i have to apply…???

    Q2. How much time it will take to get the permanent family visa?

    Q3. till the issuance of Yellow paper there is no need of showing Wife or childrens documents i.e: their passports, attested Form B in Saudi Arabia to get yellow paper?

    Q4. Besides this process is there any online process for permanent family visa?

    Q5. for origional Marriage certificate is it necessary to get is attested by Saudi Consulate in home country??? cant we have attestation in any of Saudi Office like jawazat etc???
    as im having origional marriage certificate with me which is attested by Ministry of foreign affairs from pakistan but not attested by Saudi consulate??

    waiting for your feedback brother.

    • Prosaudi Blogger

      Wa Alekum slam

      A1. You have to visit the same city’s office where your sponsor has registered his business.

      A2. If you have all the documents completed and you convince the Visa issuing authority, you can get the visa (Yellow Paper) in a single day. However it takes about 14 days to update its information in your home country.

      A3. Original passports not required, you cannot carry passport of an another person. However attested Form B is a requirement to show at Istikdam office.

      A4. I don’t think so up to current time.

      A5. It is a requirement to attest it from home country (Saudi Consulate). MOFA Pakistan attestation is not enough.

      • Salman

        Thanks Alot Brother your replies helped me alot if in future any other query i will ask you again :)

        • Salman

          Dear Brother,

          few more questions,

          Q1. From what authorities Form B should be stamped in home country (Pak MOFA, Sauid Embassy, Saudi Cultural)?

          Q2. Translation of Marriage certificate and Degree certificate can i make the translation from authorized traslators in karachi like “Al-Arab” and do i need to also get attested those translated copies? if yest than from which authorities?
          also my degree is already attested from saudi embassy, saudi cultural and Pak mofa from pakistan…

          • http://prosaudi.com/ Yasir Imran

            Answer to Q1: The question contains the answers. Yes all of them.

            Anaser to Q2: Arabic Translation inside Saudi Arabia is more trusted, there is no need to attested the translated copies. Just attest them from KSA.

    • Prosaudi Blogger

      Wa Alekum Slam

      If the National ID card of your wife and her passport having same names & same name on Marriage Certificate, it will be OK, you may go ahead for the visa. If you have a Bachelor’s degree that is attested from Saudi Consulate in your home country, you may use it. If you have sports certificate, first discuss it with HR department in your company, they might guide you. For a better knowledge, visit Istikdam office anytime and ask the Clerk/Staff there. They will guide you inshaAllah.

  • http://gravatar.com/riyaz145 riyaz145iyaz

    Some of the points that I had observed…

    1. In addition to the above requirements, if you are an Engineer, you need to get a letter from saudi council of engineers. This is a requirement before you visit the Isteqtam office in Riyadh. This letter only requires their office seal no need for chamber of commerce attestation. Also note, from the website this letter can be obtained however its recommended that you visit their office and get this letter. Please do verify whether the engineering major is same as that of your degree certificate ( its only written in Arabic). If you have newly registered, this letter will only contain Border number so do ensure that your Iqama number is updated.

    2. When are done with the requirements, do visit the Istaqtam office very early I mean before 3 AM, this will ensure that you atleast get to register your name on the paper stuck on the wall. If you go late your turn might be around 60 to 80. Well if you would want to wait then you may go late. Based on the name written once you go inside they will give a token in serial order.

    Hope this information is useful.

    Riyaz

    Assalamuwalikum w.w..Dear Brother, my profession is purchase delegate in iqama. I have B.Sc degree which is also duly attested. Please let me know if I can apply for family visa? do the official will ask for my certificate, as it is not matching with my profession, Zajaka Allah

      Usually officials check your degree matching with your profession or not. If it is not matching 100% the department of your work & your education should match. For example if you are computer graduate you may have similar professions like “computer programmer”, “computer technician”, “network technician”, “software engineer”. So if your education match your job department it will work. Upon either case, you should submit your family visa application once.
