New Rules Of Saudi Govt Exit .. Re Entry Visas

(Najamuddin Ghanghro, Karachi(original from Larkana))

As per a new Saudi Government directive fingers prints of *all departing passengers even on Exit reentry Visa * will also be taken while leaving the kingdom of Saudi Arabia at the Immigration Counters while stamping the Passports.** **

Due to this new procedure adopted by the authorities it is taking more time & long queues at the Immigration, *most of airlines* have started closing Check-In counters 2 hours before flight departures, so are requesting Passengers to report at the Airport at least minimum 4 hours before flight departure to ensure timely check in and boarding.

Effective from 25 November, The Immigration Authority at Dammam Airport has implemented new procedure that all passengers departing from Dammam Airport have to undergo finger printing upon departure and arrival.

This Procedure is applicable to Saudi Iqama holder with Exit Reentry visa Passengers as well.

*Please advise all passengers to report 4 hours before departure to complete their travel formalities. *

You are requested to pass on this Message verbally while handing over tickets & also inform all concerned travel coordinators.

Good day!

I am a Filipino and my query is about my current employer giving my exiting colleagues an exit/ re-entry visas even if they're not willing to stay in our current company. Also, our current employer is not giving us an End of Service Benefits. Where can we go to ask assistance so that it will not happen to me when I want to go on exit. Thank you and more power!
