Saudi Arabia Family Visit Visa

If you are planning on visiting Saudi Arabia in Riyadh, Jeddah or Damman, or anywhere else in the country and the intention of your trip is to either:

  • Visit family members or relatives

  • Visit for tourist and tourism purposes

  • Visit friends

Then a family visit visa or tourist visa is required. Both application types are to be made either via our agency of the Saudi Embassy in London.

Reasons to use our Saudi visa service

The most important document that you will need is a MOFA - Ministry of Foreign Affairs Government Invitation is required.

How do you obtain this MOFA letter of Invitation?

The person that is inviting you from Saudi Arabia must go visit these offices with your passport details and request an invite for yourself. This can take anywhere from 3 to 5 days. Once this invite has been authorised, then it is faxed to the Saudi embassy in London. This contains a very important number called a 'visa number'. The MOFA invite is also sent to you as well.

What do I do when I have the family visit visa invitation?

In order to start your tourist / visit Saudi visa application the next step is for you to complete the relevant application forms on our website. Once you have downloaded our visitor visa application form, and have your passport and 2 passport size photographs, they must be sent to our address in London. We can process your family travel documents once you have provided the requirements in a matter of 2 to 3 working days.

Saudi Family Visit Visa Document Legalisation

Please consult with one of our visa consultants on your full travel requirements, and who you shall be visiting and your relationship to them, along with who you shall be traveling with as well.

The Saudi Arabian embassy in London and for most around the world, will require documentation proof connecting the relationships. For example if an applicant is visiting their sibling, then the shared birth certificate is required. Other documents for relationship confirmation include marriage certificates, adoption certificates as well.

If a traveller is travelling with a minor, then the birth certificate will be required in the same application. If an applicant is visiting their partner who might be residing in Saudi Arabia, then their marriage certificate will also be required.

However all these documents will need to be legalised first by the Saudi Arabian embassy at their ratification section as Saudi Arabia is not a part of the Hague convention. Before the embassy will accept any documents for attestation, all documents will need to be apostilled at the FCO / Foreign Commonwealth Office. Depending on the document, some might need to be solicitor certified or notarised by a solicitor. Please visit our Saudi document legalisation page.

Saudi Arabia Family Visit Visa Extension

Getting a visa extension is a common question. Unfortunately no visa extensions are allowed for Saudi Arabia Visit Visas, and once a visa has expired, a new one must be applied for with a new invitation obtained again from the ministry of foreign affairs.

In order to find out more about the Ministry of Foreign Affairs / MOFA in Riyadh, please visit our MOFA specific page. Information about Iqama extensions can be found on our Iqama and visa extension page.

Exit and Reentry Family visa Rules for Saudi Arabia

If an applicant has a multiple entry visa, then they can exit and reenter Saudi Arabia on as many occasions as they wish to as long as the visa has not surpassed its expiry date and has not gone past its maximum duration.
