Visa On Arrival for New Born Baby (India-Saudi Arabia)

My Wife (Iqama Holder) & Son (2months old) came back to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia from Hyd, India on 21st June 2016 with Visa-On-Arrival for the child. Flight was Saudi Airlines which is actually the best option when Family is travelling alone.
There are 2 ways, either you get visa stamped from Saudi Embassy through some Agency near your place (In India) or opt for a similar On-Arrival visa as I did (at Airport).

Visa-On-Arrival Process at Airport: Age limit of the child should be less than 6 months.
You should have your child’s passport, Add an infant ticket with mother’s ticket, original passport & original birth certificate (attested from Saudi Embassy) is required. At Airport in India, during immigration you have to tell them new born baby on arrival visa. They will check the child’s passport, original birth certificate & then stamp the immigration departure on the passport.
When you arrive at Saudi Arabia Airport, you have to tell them new born baby On- Arrival Visa for IQAMA (Do not forget to tell them to link the border number with Father’s Iqama). Once they link the border number with father’s iqama. It will show on MOI Abshir Iqama Issuance page. Do check it otherwise you will have to come back to Airport Immigration office later. Then they will put entry stamp & then write Visa Number & Border Number with pen on child’s passport.
If the above is done, you are good to leave the Airport without any hesitation and doubt.

Iqama Process for New Born Baby:

1. Before going to Jawazat, get the Insurance Card for your child which is mandatory.
2. Polio Vaccination Certificate (From India)
3. Child’s Photo, Original & copy of parent’s Iqama, Original & copy of all passports including child.
4. Iqama form – Either get it from Jawazat (They will charge you 10 or 20 SAR to fill it as well) or ask your HR department. They will have it.
5. Deposit SAR 2000 under your Iqama as dependent entry visa fees collection.
6.  Go to Jawazat & they will issue the Iqama.

Hope it was helpful...

It is informative.
Thank you for sharing.

Dear

My sister who is iqama holder under her father, got refused visa on arrival for the baby who is under 6 months, any idea why ? They refuse to explain  :sosad:

Please help !

Birth Certificate attestation is for the Saudi Airport Immigrations for On-Arrival Visa. Sometimes they ask for it, sometimes they don't. In my case, they did asked for the Attestation & Arabic translation.

Birth Certificate attestation & translation is for the Saudi Airport Immigrations for their understanding for On-Arrival Visa. Sometimes they ask for it, sometimes they don't. In my case, they did asked for the Attestation & Arabic translation.

No need for Attestation on Polio Vaccination...

Well appreciated!

Just find some good Visa processing agent near your place and tell him that u want Saudi Attestation with Arabic translation on Birth Cert. It costed me 2500 (Indian Rupees) and got in 6working days.

Thank you for the information

What about , if father holding a family visit visa ( That means ; no Iqama for father ) and mother having Iqama with working in ministry of health. ?
Is they allow on arrival visa for new born ?

They don't ask for birth certificate if visa is attested on Baby PP. I got the IQAMA for my baby last week

Yes they will provide on-arrival visa. In your case, Just tell the saudi immigration officer to link the baby's border number/visa number with mother's iqama.

Yes they will not ask about the birth certificate if the visa is already stamped from Saudi Embassy @ home country.

Hi.. You shouldn't have any issue with Airport if you have Exit Reentry.
Once you arrived in Riyadh, immigration officials will enter the border number on baby PP.

Good to go, no worries.. !

For Iqama, you have to take polio medical cert. from Riyadh Hospital as well.

The experience shared above is 3 months back and i dont think there is any change in the system till now. To be sure, confirm it from the concerned airlines. Saudia allowed it with no issues in my case. Their executive even came with the mother and baby to the immigration department.
The documents you mentioned are enough for the visa-on-arrival process.
Best of Luck...

Jazakallahu khair

Please what is the procedure to get visa for new born baby in india ? My wife has iqama and now we have 1 month new born baby .

Please can anyone tell what is the latest procedure to bring my new born baby (3 months old) to saudi Arabia.Mother has valid Exit _re entry. I also will accompany with them when return.
Should i get visa attested in baby PP in india? Or can get on arrival visa for baby?

Hi Mate !
Less than 6 months you can get the visa for baby on arrival @ KSA

Immigration officials will issue the border no. and mention on baby PP - shouldn't be a problem.
However, in case you would like to be more safer then send the PP to Saudi Embassy in Mumbai & they will asset the visa within two working days.

Hope this helps

Thanks

Jazakallah Khair...Thank you for ur info...In case of on arrival visa should i have attested birth certificate and polio certificate with translation?

Immigration Officials will ask for Birth Certificate along with Translation during on arrival visa to validate the age.

For IQAMA, you will be needing both Birth Cert. along with Polio Immunization Cert. duly translated and attested by Saudi Embassy

Instead of on arrival, I have applied for visa through embassy in Mumbai which took 2 working days to avoid on arrival issues - quite easy process

Thank you...
