This is really Bad news for Expats

The segment they have kept intact is the majority I guess: Employees and dependents going on short (2 months max) trips.

With a levied fees of 3000 SAR for 6 months multiple entry visitors, I hope they'll at least open options for uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters also,

Many will not be happy specially those having family/parents or children studying abroad. This will also affect those investors or business men mostly living in Dubai/Bahrain and have business or work in KSA.

Dear all.
This is not good news.Is there any increase in family visit visa fee as before 30 riyal for chamber of commerce?
Please someone inform us.
Thank you
