Saudi Arabia To Extend Visas And Permits For Bangladeshi Workers
Visa services will also be resumed at the Saudi Embassy in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. The Saudi Embassy in Dhaka has announced that visa stamping, visa extension and cancellation services will resume from the 27th of this month. The embassy said it would only accept applications for visa services through embassy-approved offices.
Holders of Saudi visas are required to submit documents proving that they are corona virus free by performing PCR tests to enter the country. The Saudi embassy in Dhaka said PCR checks must be carried out within 48 hours of arrival at Saudi airports.
With the suspension of international services in the wake of the Corona expansion, the Ministry of Manpower and Social Development has issued work visas and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued visit visas, while foreign embassies and consulates have stopped stamping previously issued visas. Saudi embassies and consulates abroad are resuming visa services in the wake of the partial resumption of international services in Saudi Arabia and the decision to resume services in full from January 1st.
The Saudi embassy in the Philippines has recently resumed visa service. Holders of expired re-entry visas, visitor visas and iqama visas must approach the Saudi Visa Service Center (Tashil-VFS) approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to complete the procedures by paying the fees. Passports of those who complete the procedure will be produced at the Tasheel-VFS Center Embassy. The Saudi embassy in Manila said such passports would be issued with the required visas within one working day.
