Yes brother but not for all professions

my friend if he told you "maffi english" that means you filled the form in English or letters in English
all what you need to do to be sure all your document in Arabic this is the formal language for officials

"Maffi English" in this context must mean: "I don't know what you are saying. I don't know English".

It would have been better to take along an Arabic speaking colleague or friend.

Hello there!
Do not lose hope.
Today is not the same as tomorrow. May be you're not lucky  and the authorities  denied your application for family visa. Try again next time. There's always hope behind the clouds a silver lining  is ready to shine upon you.
Try to check if your position allows you to bring your  family here. Consult your HR regarding why your request was denied and try again.
There's no harm in trying. My officemate was also denied but after consulting our HR. The authorities grant him his wife's visa. His wife arrived last Saturday. Cheers!

Dear they have right to reject or accept without any reason, and you can't do anything else you apply again, it's happen to me and 5th time they accept my request after all i bring same documents and same information. Keep trying...maafi english mean, he don't understand english and that's the cause some time we end up here.

you need to fill your application in Arabic and all certificates need translation

All my documents already were in proper place.... I have applied again... wish me luck...  :)

:top:  Don't give up brother... I am sure you can do that, keep calm and don't lose your patience... :thanks:

thank you brother... :)

I got the family visa today.. The reason of rejection was I did not pay the fee SAR 2000. and here no one at office told me about the fee,
I had appointment today and took one saudi guy with me. He asked the reason and got to know the reason. I paid the fee and got the visa.

Quite weird.

SCE Letter not compulsory

If your job is a teaching position, go to Daves ESL cafe dot com.
They have lots of teachers with visa experience.

If it's not a teaching position, I don't know what to tell you

try again, and you should bring one of your arabic speaking colleague to help you there, or bring your company liaison officer to talk to the immigration officer.
