About Family Visit Visa in Saudi Arabia

I have applied for family visit visa last week (21/10/2013) and my application was rejected. My iqama profession is Programmer and also I am doing programmer job in a company. I applied visit visa for my wife. My profession was updated before 3 months.

From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it came the message-
"Ministry Apologies for achieving your demand"

What could be reason for rejecting the request for family visit visa-

1) Is it for immediately after the Hajj?
2) Is there any restriction like after change the profession need some period to update?

Please advice and help.


They don't specify reasons and it's not necessary they really had any.

Your best bet would be to keep trying putting a gap of few days every time. This is how most people get it.

I don't think the time is an issue. I applied for Visit Visa for my Father on 20/Oct and they issued the same on 24/Oct. Please ensure that, all the information in the application is correct and comply with the expectations of MOFA.

Hope this helps.
