What Awaits Filipinos Overstaying with Visit Visa in Saudi

Posted by:

A maximum of SR50,000 fine, imprisonment and/or deportation is what an overstaying visit visa holder in Saudi will get.

 

The General Directorate of Passports (Jawazat) warned foreign visit visa holders, as well as expat workers, not to stay beyond the validity period.

 

Expats or Saudi who issued the visit visa will be fined an amount of SR15,000 for their first offense. A three-month jail time and a penalty of SR25,000 is up for the second violation. While SR50,000 fine, six months in jail and deportation for expats will be the punishment for third offense.

 

Questions may be directed to Jawazat by contacting them online through their website gdp.gov.sa@992.

 

To avoid any inconvenience such as these penalties, the directorate encourage all visit visa holders to obey the residency regulations in Saudi and leave the kingdom before the expiration date.

  1. Wearing indecent clothes that shows off most part of the body when in public places. Women can wear an abaya to cover up.
  2. Female OFWs should avoid entering entertainment shops or stores.
  3. Women are not allowed to dine in at restaurants alone. They should be accompanied by their husband.
  4. Public display of affection is prohibited in the kingdom.
  5. Taking photos of mosques, airports and military bases without permission is forbidden.
  6. Persons of the opposite sex should not be together in a room unless they are married.
  7. Non-muslim OFWs are off-limits at mosques.
