Drive car from Dubai to Saudi Arabia

Hi, I've recently moved from UAE to Saudi Arabia, but my car is still in Dubai. I would like to drive it across the border to Saudi and use it in Saudi for about 6 months (because the car is still valid in UAE till March 2023). Eventually I would probably import it, but I'll do that later.

I have the Iqama and Saudi driving license, UAE insurance but I can buy KSA extension, what else do I need? There are a lot of different explanations online.

can you please advise your experience on this.



I took my uae car on a road trip to saudi more than 6 months ago and I flew out of saudi leaving my car there after the 10 day trip. Now i want to bring my car back to uae. I have a few questions:

1. Am i liable to pay any fines since the car was just sitting there for more than 6 months? If yes how do i pay the fine?

2. Can i just drive to the border or do i need to renew insurance or something?

3. Will there be any other issues at the border?
