The royal order also permits them to work, hence, exempting them from the regulations after they obtain travel documents from the legitimate government of their country.

The Passports Department (Jawazat) has completed all the necessary preparations for carrying out the royal order.

The Department added that the SR100 fee for extending the validity of visitor’s identity card for six months can be paid through Sadad system as of ‪Friday Dec. 25, 2015‬ (‪14/3‬/1437H) ‪until Sunday Jan. 3, 2016‬(‪23/3‬/1437H).
