Saudi Arabia to issue new host visa for families of expats

The Saudi government is going to add a new visa category ‘Host Visa’ in its newly-introduced regime. It  will allow expatriates in the kingdom to invite their family members on personal sponsorship for up to 90 days and will be free to host their guests anywhere. The authorities are working on the new visa mechanism which will cost about 500 Saudi Riyals for a year.

The individuals entering the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia under host visas will be registered in the Civil Status registry of citizens and the Absher portal and there will  be no restriction on their movements across the country after registration.
