If you are already issued a final exit visa...

...does that mean you're all clear to leave the Kingdom? Does that mean that the immigration at the airport will not stop you?

Edit: By the way, I'm new around here. Hello! I would greatly appreciate it if my questions are answered. Thanks in advance! ^_^

A final exit means you are clear to leave the country

So you're clear all the way back to your country or wherever your destination is, huh? What does the immigration at the airport check from you when you go for final exit?

Thanks! I hope TheLegendLeads or HRGuru can answer these too. :)

By logic, why immigration people would check about your next destination???!!!!. Main thing for them, is that you're cleared to leave kingdom according your exit-only visa...

hope it's helpful

An exit visa is only stamped in passport after you have cleared all your dues to employer and vice versa and also to the Govt (outsatnding parking fines , bank loans etc etc). So once you have the exit in your passport - no one will check anything further. They will no check your next destination - its of no interest to them.

No,

In order to leave KSA for good, you need the exit visa.

Yes you can leave KSA on final exit and then travel from Riyadh to any place in the world for which you have the visa.

As long as you have a valid entry visa to the country you are going to,  you can leave to any country after exiting from KSA.

Based on your profession, you could get visa on arrival in Dubai if you were holding a valid GCC resident permit. Since you have final exit, you should get visa prior to traveling or check after being in transit.

If you are issued an exit visa that means you have to leave Saudi Arabia on or before the date mentioned in the visa, it doesn't say that you have to go back to your home country.

You can visit any country you want to provided you have a valid visa for that country for some countries the visa can be taken on arrival and for some it has to be taken in advance.Confirm with UAE embassy at Diplomatic Quarters Riyadh (+966-1-4881227) for your visa requirements.

For the ticket to Philippines which is already provided to you by your sponsor - you can ask your sponsor to cancel it and issue a new ticket or just let you have the money and you can make your own plans for travel (Riyadh - Dubai - Philippines).

No, as long as you have final exit , it does not matter to where you are boarding from KSA.

thank you hrguro..it helps me a lot, i inform you as soon as i arrived to my destination.

Same issue here. Im planning to have an exit visa here in riyadh and im going to abu dhabi with visit visa provided with my friend. Is there a chance that the immigration of both countries will not accept my visas? I mean is riyadh will allow me to exit and allow me to visit abu dabhi than to go to my home country? And does abu dabhi accept my visa? Anyone knows how are the procedure in  the immigration in both countries? Thanks

If you already have a visit visa then no issues, you can enter UAE. The immigration here does not check as to where you are departing to as long you as you have valid documentation - on your final exit and valid visa on arrival.

As HR Guru said, here they dont care where you would end up. For them they only care for valid exit visa with valid passport. Also if you have visit visa to UAE, they dont care where you come from. So just have a nice trip.

Thanks for the advised, im just worry if i will buy a ticket going back to my hometown philippines and have a connecting flight to abu dabhi or i will just buy a direct flight from riyadh to abu dabhi. Which one do you think much prefered for my situation? Thanks

you can buy any flight ticked as you like, when you leave saudi, you need a ticket to take you out of saudi. When you enter abudhabi, you just need a return ticket to leave abudhabi. So if you book a connecting ticket form abudhabi, you can purchace with a gap of days. As i used to fly from dubai, i book connecting flight of emirates. I stay in dubai for few days then go back to my country. This way the flight tickets would be cheaper for me.  So hope you also do the same. If you buy separate tkt, you might endup paying more. Just check with your airlines can they provide conencting flight with days gap. As i could do so through emirates to china and india.

In any case. What if i having a vacation in abu dabhi then i decided to find job there. Is it allowed there to have work even im not having a final exit from riyadh? Anyone any comments? Thanks.

You can enter abudhabi and find a job there no issue for that. But once you get a job you have to change your entry status from business or tourist to employment. So for those procedures its better to make a post in UAE blog. If you get a job there and change your status, you should also think about how to make your exit reentry of saudi to final exit. good luck

Are you sure they are not checking your point of origin during exit in KSA?
Yes you can kabayan. I have done this and it needs a lot of guts to do it. First what you need to do is magpabook ka ng ticket na may stop over sa dubai. Whether its a 1 one hour or more of stop over. Then when you are in DXB airport approach the airline staff counter that you want to cancel the flight going to PHL and enter the Dubai for a short visit. Then they will need the info of your ticket. After they cancel the flight you can now que for the immigration for entry in Dubai. However you should need the following documents ready:

1. Visit Visa (sponsored by a friend or an agency or a Travel agency in dubai)
2. Hotel reservation for a stay in dubai ( at least 1 day reservation in a 4 star hotel is ok)
3. contact number of your friend and address (in case the immigration officer will ask for a reference).

Please note when exiting in KSA please dont ever mention on the authorities that you will be staying in Dubai. Normally if you are in a Final exit visa they will need to see if you will going to point of origin which is PHL. Unless its a exit-reentry then it is not needed to have a ticket in your point of origin.

I dont understand what KSA has to do with a person's final exit. And why they have to make sure that a person goes back to the point of origin. Just double check of what you are saying. And if that's true, then its indeed a Magic Kingdom :) :)

The statement I have posted comes from a post from another site by another person that is why I am asking as you can see from the start. Again, are you sure they have nothing to do with the person's point of origin?

We can all quote statements and "ideal scenarios" from sites or from the grape vine . But when giving feedback on a public forum like this, I believe you should give information which is correct and proven. It is by default understood that when an employee gets final exit his employer will give him one way ticket to his point of origin. This ticket is not checked by any one at the airport, neither will they ask if he is going to his point of origin or some place else; If he has a valid visa to another country the Saudi officials at the airport cannot stop him from traveling there under any circumstances. As long as the documents you have is clear no need to worry about traveling to any place from KSA on final exit. What they check here is if you are leaving on the right terms ( ERE, Exit, Visit visa etc) and once you arrive at your destination, they will only look if you have the necessary approved documents that will allow you to enter that country legally.

Hope this is clear.

Here we go, that's what I was thinking of how they can control if the person has already done the final exit. Then I thought they might have some control for the GCC country !!

But anyways it's clear now :)

That is clearly my mistake for not putting a quote to the said statement. I am planning to resign before my contract ends so I will be the one to buy my own ticket. Will they let me to buy a ticket going to another country instead of going to my point of origin which is the Philippines? Or should I buy a ticket that has a stop over in dubai then cancel my flight going to Philippines the moment I am in dubai? Using the second option should I tell them that I will stay long to another country? Thanks in advance HRGuru!

For Saudi Authorities, a person with Final exit is leaving the country permanently and it does not matter to them to where you are leaving to and neither its their business as long as you have valid visa / documents to another country. If you are buying the ticket ,  no one can stop you. You can get this to any place you want provided you are legally eligible to go there.

Yes you can provided you inform the bank about your plan to change the sponsorship and notify them the new offer. Also you might need to inform your new employer to continue transferring your salary to your SAMBA account. You can go to the bank customer care and they can better give you current process.

Thank you so much for the info. Can SAMBA bank give me clearance even im final exit? Because my current company told me that I need to final exit and return under new company. Again thank you.

Final exit will not get clearance until you pay back the loan amount and related fees in full. If you are transferring they will transfer from one employer to another, but if you are going for exit then you need to pay the money back in full.
