Step in processing saudi requirements for family visa

Hi im a mother of 2 girl ages 7-10 amd my husband works in saudi. We are now preparing all documents needed for processing our family visa for us to join him there.  Ive already finished all documents needed aside from the embassy authenthication which is handles by an agency cqlled eastwest located in makati also.. does it really being forwarded to an agency called eastwest? We arrived at the embassy gate and the guard gave us a photocopied slip instructing us to go there. I paid 750/document thru BDO on a savings acoount woth a given name not directly to saudi embassy account. Is it legit? Because i havejt spolen to any saidi staff or even step foot inside the  embassy.

We are ex-saudi resident for 8 years and we are going back after 2 years...  before is easier because our designated agency do all the processing and i only furnished all document and medical then done.

My concern is the  legitimatacy of transaction  for my saudi attestation/authenthication. because been googling infos but to no avail have any formal instruction on how to really get saudi embassy authenthication processing instruction. I even called their embassy number but its always on hold or busy. Please advise me ;(

I just hope this reply is not too reply. Your documents are almost complete as you have to wait for authenticated MC & BCs of kids from Saudi Embassy. Your husband should have applied a family residence visa in Istaqdam (MOFA) in KSA so that he can send the copy of visa (yellow slip) to you as it is needed in VFS Tasheel. Visa stamp appointment in VFS Tasheel is online and you can choose a regular one for less payment, this process will only takes 2-3 days then you can get back the original passports with stamped visa. Good luck.

Thank you sir for the reply... i more question sir.. my husband already have the ywllow form form tje saudi embassy... he said that i needed to apply for appointment via vfs...  bit i havent gone to the medical testing process... which shoiluld come 1st?

Hello mam, good to hear that your husband has the visa already. He is right that VFS Tasheel appointment is done online and they also have offices in Davao and Cebu, if your province is near at any of this offices no need to go to Manila anymore. But you need to undergo medical test first to any clinic affiliated with VFS as the result will be forwarded online. Children ages 12 and below are exempted for medical exam (unless the policy has changed) just prepare their vaccination records in case it will be needed. The requirements needed for VFS Tasheel are: Visa copy (scanned copy will do), copy of Iqama & passport of husband; Certificate of Employment of husband (with stamped from Saudi Chamber of Commerce if working in private companies); original and photocopy of wife and kids passports; attested copy of Marriage Contract and Birth Certificates of children by Saudi Embassy; and, result of your medical test (online). If all of these are complete, you can book an online appointment in VFS Tasheel website (https://www.vfstasheel.com/landing.html#/index) just follow the instruction carefully then visit their office nearest your place on the date of appointment. Again, you can select Normal appointment to save almost Php 3500 each as compared if you choose Lounge appointment. Since you have children with you, they will make your visit comfortable. Good luck.

Thank youbsir for you helpful reply.. as to the selection of appointment .. can i select normal appointment? But still be accomodated conviniently? I was really contemplating if normal or lounge for the kids.

My wife had opted for Regular for our 2 kids but they were offered to stay at the Lounge for free. As I have mentioned earlier, you can save Php 3500 each in Regular appointment but if money is not an issue then select Lounge right away. 😊

Tnxs sir for all the help... Godbless!

Hi mam, don't worry. Just bring with you the hard copy of your medical test result together with other required documents during your appointment in VFS Tasheel. It is also accepted as told by a good friend of mine whose daughter just arrived in KSA last month holding a resident visa. Everything will be fine and good luck.

Tnx sir!  Your advice is a big help! Godbless!

Hi! I would like to ask regarding the visa application of my husband..i already have pre visa but the problem is if I will translate his name in english it has different spelling..the liason in our hospital informed me that its okay as long as when they read its the same..when i ask him to change and we will apply for another visa in mofa he told me no need..because there is no problem with the spelling

What I know is that visas are in English particularly for non- Arabs applicants and what is important is the visa number.

The person who wrote the application is saudi national..he wrote it in arabic thats why if I will translate it to english the name has different spelling..

Ah I see, but how? Because all non-Arabs applicants are required to type their names in English as per the instructions listed at the back of the visa application form. Btw, is it approved already? If you do have the visa (yellow paper) so it means everything is okay. Just pray that no problems to encountered while processing in VFS Tasheel. Good luck.

Yeah it is approved already..around 2 days after i submitted the application in mofa..my only concern is if I will submit it in embassy in the philippines.

Ah I see, no need to worry as they will check the name against your passport once you will submit all the necessary documents in VFS Tasheel. Besides, there is no perfect Arabic translation of English names as they have different set of alphabet.

Any update on your case will be appreciated if you have arrived in KSA, thanks.
