Extending exit reentry of dependents

The process is quite easy actually.. 
1) online application
This you must apply atleast two weeks before the expiry of exit reentry. In there is an option for extending exit reentry visa in visa services for residents.
Apply like you apply for visiting visa, print it out and get it attested from chamber of Commerce... Check status online.  First it will be showing status as recieved at chamber. Once approved from mofa you just need to print it and send it to the embassy in your country to get the visa stamped...this should be done after visa is expired ie the stamping process.  This is the easiest way and the latest way but it is not working anymore..Even the mofa guys are not sure about it but in saudi Arabia each has different experience. My friend got it approved like this for his daughter and she did come back to Saudi. So I tried the same way but mine the status never changed from Riyadh chamber.. It was always showing Riyadh chamber for two weeks and my wife's reentry was expiring soon.  So I went to mofa with the online application form... I told them that I had applied two weeks before online for extension of exit reentry for dependents and still the status online was Riyadh chamber and not yet approved or rejected by mofa... He gave me a print out which the second method of applying.... The print out he gave was a format in which the company should write the letter to the Saudi embassy in your country, and the requirements in it where that the period of stay should not have exceeded more than 7 months and that the iqama should have validity. You also need print out from jawazaat for you and all the dependents (I think it's a muqeem print out,  your company HR will know what and how to get it ) to verify the validity of iqamas and visa, finally everyone's renewed iqama copies and your passport copy ..
So make sure you guys send the following to the Saudi embassy of your country to get the visa stamped after expiry
1) company letter with attestation from chamber of Commerce and mofa (if you guys are in riyadh just go to the chamber of Commerce in exit 10, after getting attested from chamber just go to ground floor, there is a small  mofa office from you can get mofa stamp also but make sure you have your original iqama with you as they verify coz the letter from your company will be having your iqama info ).
2)print out from jawazaat (yours and dependents ) 
3) iqama copies
4)your passport copy
5) original passports of applicants (of course)

This is a two day job... Not hectic..
If anyone could correct me or had done in any other way please share.. 14-06-2016

my wife exit re entry visa expired 6/6/2016. She couldn't travel becoz doctors strictly advised her not to travel due to some serious medical issues. Her iqama is valid up to 07/01/2017. I m trying my best to extend her re entry visa and get her down to Saudi. But still could not do. I have all documents muqeem and doctors letter attested, sponsor letter etc.  Saudi MOFA telling Send all documents to Embassy in your country they must do. Embassy in my country telling MOFA in Saudi should activate in the system. Im hopeless. If u can help some one had done ..PLEASE guide me the correct path. Thnx. Ahamed frm Dammam

What are they saying should be activated in the mofa system??

I think it's too late now. The process must have started before exit re-entry expiry. Nevertheless, please follow the procedure as @Naveed explained in details.

Many thanks for the write-up.

Dont worry @ahmed, the process of exit rentry extension starts after the expiry of the visa and it can be done until the iqama expires (atleast a month before).

I myself have got it done.

Dear Brothers,

Did anyone succedded in extending expired exit rentry, please share your experience and latest procedure. Jazakallah khair.

Dear ..
I went to HR they gave 3 to 4 documents.
This has stamps from MOFA and CoC.  When I asked what to do to the documents .
They said send to your country directly . Nothing pending .
So I am not sure what need approval and what need waiting .
Like I asked for extension papers.  Yes they took like 10 days but he says everything is done.
2  papers from jawazat attested
1 letter from the Employer attested from MOFA  and Coc.
Haven't send to my country yet but said all done . Kindly send to your country to etimad get a stamp and bring  them back

Kindly reply what are those 3 to 4 documents.

1. Letter from emloyer stamped by COC  and MOFA with iqama  number nationality and relationship
2.malomat  an muqeem of each dependant
3.shaksiya  muqeem of each dependant

Thanks for prompt reply. Please advise as how to acquire "malomat  an muqeem of each dependant" and "shaksiya  muqeem of each dependant".

Frankly I just asked HR and they send me the documents and said now send back to your country 
I didn't expected that . I thought will ask me to go MOFA or something but they said all done.
Exact process I don't know .
First make a letter from your employer.  Attest CoC  then mofa  . Go to jawazat  get these two papers.
But I am not sure how to make it

So, Employer prepared the letters and he got it attested from CoC and MOFA. Have I understood correctly?

Yes . Actually I havent visited anywhere .
They did every thing.
I am not sure what else to do , but as per them send these back to your country and submit
