Family Visit Visa - Tracking an Application's Progress

Due to the lack of information available, I decided to post a summary of the different stages of my family visit application. The translation was done from Google translate.


1. Once the application is electronically submitted online on the MOFA website.
The following message appears alongside a summary of your application.

يرجى طباعة الطلب وتصديقه الكترونيا من الغرفة التجارية او جهة العمل
Please print the application and electronically ratification of the Chamber of Commerce or the employer


2. Paid the employer 25 SAR and a copy of the application, then they submitted the application to the Chamber of Commerce. The following message appears alongside a summary of your application:

(تم التصديق على الطلب: ( 688888 ) بتاريخ 2013/12/29 (غرفة الرياض)
The ratification of the request: (688888) on 29/12/2013 (Riyadh Chamber)



3. Once the MOFA issue the visa, the following message appears, with a shortened summary of your application:

لرجاء طباعة المستند ومراجعة ممثلية المملكة لإصدار تأشيرة الدخول
Please print the document and audit representation Kingdom to issue visa



****
Next step, print the visa document, and take it to the embassy in the country of your residence. There, the visa will be issued in your passport.

Summary:

Application submitted online (Saturday 28th December 2013)
Next day employer submits to Chamber of Commerce (Sunday 29th December 2013).
MOFA issued visa within 6 days (Saturday 4th January)

Hope this helps.

Thanks, But I am sure most of them have been asked to visit MOFA along with the original IQAMA, Visa Application and passport copy of the visitors. and after that you have to monitor online to check for the visa.

no nothing as such required to visit everytime everyone

Procedure to check Family Visit Visa Application Status

First of all you need to go to the website of MOFA through this website : https://visa.mofa.gov.sa/.
You will have to select “English” language from there. A page will be opened where you will have to enter the information to check Family Visit Visa Application Status. Select “Application submitted to MOFA” in front of “Search for”.  Application number which is given to you by MOFA when you applied for the visit visa needs to be entered here. Iqama Number also needs to be entered in third box and image code in the fourth box. Once all the information has been entered, you need to click on inquire a message like this will appear on your computer screen.

If a person if working in government , does he need chamber of commerce stamp on visa application ?

Yes he does. In order to make it look as a legal document.

Salaam,

Please clarify on the below step, I have already submitted the Visa application form to chamber of commerce and got the acknowledgement but the mofa website still showing the status to print the application and submit to chamber of commerce , My question is how much time does it take to update the status once application is submitted in chamber of commerce.

Thanks

are you applying from riyadh?

Yes i m applying from riyadh

then you should add your name with your family name in application  the name of visitor should be atleast 3
may be your wife name in  2 or 1 name format

Thanks for ur reply
I m only applying family visit visa for my wife
Brother can u pls explain more
For example my if my wife name is on passport
Surname, malik
Given name, sidra
And if my name is on iqama ali afzal afzal mehmood

Then how should i write name of my wife on visit visa online form

yes for visit visa specially in riyadh they will not accept if there is only 2 names,
so you should write sidra malik + if your name in her passport mentioned as spouse name same write like that complete name if incase your name not in her passport and father name is there in her passport write father name with her name

Means i should write
Sidra malik ali afzal

your name same like this in her passport ali afzal? if yes then you write visitor name sidra malik ali afzal

excelent reply
