Visa Cancellation

Good Day! I would just like to ask for answers. I am a Filipino. i applied for a job bound to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. My passport has been stamped for duration of 90 days only. Is it already an employment visa if it is only for 90 days? I want also to cancel the visa because of personal reasons. How to cancel it? I did not sign any contract yet and my documents are not yet finished. But my passport has been stamped and my Red ribbon in TOR and DIPLOMA and i am fit to work already. Can I still cancel it? How much would I pay? if it has been cancelled, would i be banned in other MIddle East countries? Would I be denied a new visa? Thanks if you can reply.

If you are still in Philippines and did not start to KSA, you can inform the potential employer of your decision of not joining and coming to work in KSA. They can start the process of cancellation of the visa from their side and yes you may have to pay the charges for the medical or visa if the company has already paid for it. You could refuse and they maynot be able to do anything , but wouldnt be ethical.

They cant ban you from further entry since you havent processed / use the visa that was already issued for you yet.

Thanks for the reply. So if later on  I will plan to go to UAE. The agency can't ban me or I can be given a new visa as long as I can cancel the previous visa stamp in the passport.  Am I right? Do you know what is the procedure in cancelling the saudi visa. Thanks again.

No relation whatsoever between UAE and KSA. You can go ahead to UAE. As for cancellation as mentioned above, inform your employer in KSA and they  will start this process with the agency that processed your paper work as of now.

Thanks for the reply. I would like to ask another question. If I will just let the visa be expired. Then after it was expired, Can my passport be stamped by any country or it really needs the expired visa to be cancelled? Thanks.

It needs the expired visa to be cancelled if you are intending to travel within GCC.  In GCC you cannot have two valid work visas at the same time.

Iam on employment visa my probation period going on I got my iqama, I want to go back my home due to my family problem wat procedure for visa cancellation, kindly reply

If on probation you can resign and ask for exit from employer, though you may need to pay all expenses incurred by the employer in hiring you.

Under the current circumstances in saudi this may take time, after levy and other verification. But in all cases for cancelation / exit this should not be exceeding a max of two week time.

Good day,
I want to ask how to cancel the expired visa? If the employer did not cancelling my visa and not cooperate and not talking to me what would i do? They have another way or option to cancelled the expired visa?
