Final exit

Hi, i have a flight tomorrow Riyadh to Manila and it is a Final Exit. My passport will expire on January 20, 2014. I am worried because i am not sure if they are strict with the 6 month validity rule of passport and does it apply also for Final Exits and for those returning to your home country. I just want to ask also if I need to get through or pass the immigration for checking or no need? Thanks a lot I hope someone could respond to me ASAP. Tomorrow is my flight. Happy holidays!

Hello Kabayan, Actually your passport is valid at the moment, and you're going tomorrow .

Even if your passport has more than 6 months validity, the destination country has the right to deny your entry for whatever reason they can find. The 6 months is only a guide but I guess that is the minimum that you need to comply.
Good Luck !!! :top:

Thank you so much Sir for your kind reply. But one more thing Sir, are you trying to say that i will encounter no problem here in king khaled airport instead i will encounter a lot in our own country??? Hehehe. Because what i am worried about is at first from here in the kingdom if they will let me travel or not? Thanks again. :)

Riyadh Airport guys will let you travel on the final exit visa.
And upon reaching home country, what can they do? Can you send you back to KSA to renew passport? :P

Hi, yes i hope they will let me travel with that passport because it is still valid. That's what i want! Hehe. Thank you sir!

What i am worried about is that my passport is valid less than 6 months. It will expire within 1 month or less, january 20, 2014 and my flight is tomorrow. I hope king khaled airport is not strict with that 6 month validity rule of passports since i am for final exit already and besides i'm going back to my own country. :)

If you are a citizen of Philippines then you can enter your country no matter the validity of the passport, but upon your arrival it should be valid until that day. But if you are travelling to any other country or want to transit, then your passport need ot be valid for 6 months.
For final exit or Exit reentry they dont care how many months your passport is valid. they just let you gonna leave.
Upon arrival again in saudi your passport need to be valid for 6 months.
These are just simple rules need to follow. You dont need to worry, you can just travel back to your country now. Have a nice and safe journey.

Yehey! Thank you so much Sir! I am so happy for your reply, i was relieved from worrying! Hehe. 😊👍 God Bless! Happy holidays

No problem, you can go in peace  :)

I have no more time to renew my passport here in riyadh and my plan is to renew in philippines since i will have 60 day vacation... I hope you can answer me to answer my agony...thank you very much

@Honsamba

You can leave Riyadh and renew your passport in Philippines, just make sure that you bring the old passport with you when you are returning back to Riyadh.
Once you are in Riyadh you will have to register your new passport against your Iqama for that you can ask your employers help.

Still if you are worried just give a call to your embassy and ask for their advice.

They care about the moment you will stamp your passport in the airport, they don't care about remaining.

They care about remaining time if you need to make exit-reentry, you can't make your exit-reentry valid more than expiry date of your passport, in addition you must have remaining time in your Iqama 3 months + the time you will spend outside the kingdom.

@honsamba,
As you are flying back to phil in feb, you still have enough time to renew your passport here. But if you still insist to get it done in phil, thats fine. As for your leaving they do not consider the validity of the passport, but it should not be expired. While you enter in riyadh, it should be valid for 6 months. After you get your new passport, do not forget to get your old one, coz your iqama is registered with your old passport. Incase you want to change your iqama to new passport, it would take some time and cost some money. So its ok if you can carry your both passports that would be fine. As i am also doing the same for myself.

Can anybody help me here
My passport will expire on March 10, 2015
I go for final exit on February 2, 2015 thru Dammam airport to philippines

My problem is. Can I encounter a problem in airport immigration both in Dammam and Manila?

Thank you

Hi JoshPe,

The six-month validity of passport is more strictly followed, as far as I know, to out bound travel (non returning citizens, in general).
Since you are for final exit and that your date of flight is within the period of your passport's validity, IMO that would be fine.

Just to make sure, you can call the Philippine Embassy on their numbers:
TEL 482-3559 , 482-0507, 482-1577

They are accommodating to questions, as I experienced it myself.

hi!

Hello,

My wife gave birth to our new born son, and my company have terminated me last Aug. 8, 2015. Now i ask the HR Office of my company to extend my stay for 40days so that i could process my baby for a passport, in the Phil. Embassy the processing days for new passport for new baby is 60days we have the following supporting documents like:
*Temporary Birth-Cert from the Hospital.
*Registration of Birth/Birth Cert. from MOFA Civil Affairs.
*Marriage Cert. (sealed,red ribbon and stamp by the Phil. Embassy).
*Vaccination Card.

they have advised and give a Travel Document instead of Passport for my baby. i have several questions:

1. Is it valid to use a Travel Document for my son in the Saudi Airport?
2. How is the process to get a exit/final exit visa for the Travel Documents given by the Philippine Embassy?
3. Ho much is the cost for the Visa?
4. Will these be enough for me and my baby to go home?

Passport Validity on exit visa from Dammam, KSA,

Dear Members,

I know the topic has been discussed earlier, but I couldn't find the experience of expats who successfully managed to leave to their home towns with less than 6 months of passport validity from Saudi Arabia. Can anybody share his/her experience if he/she managed to get final exit and left Saudi Arabia with say around a month or two month of passport validity with final exit. I would appreciate sincere advise from your experience. I am also having same issue with one and a half month validity of my passport while I would be leaving on final exit.

Thanks & Regards.....
