ALL visa applications MUST BE forwarded through a registered agent for the processing of the visa. For contact details of registered agents CLICK HERE. We emphasize that the embassy receives visa applications from the agencies every day for any number of applications, and then return them back to the agencies on the same day without keeping any passport at the embassy for another day.
Every applicant must comply with the following requirements when submitting their visa application to a registered agent:
1.    Forward your passport, which must be valid for at least six (6) months from the date of the visa application, and have at least two (2) clear pages facing each other.
2.    Submit a fully completed visa application form filled in with a pen or printed. To download a visa application form, CLICK HERE. Please ensure you include your address, telephone and mobile numbers and email address on the application.
3.    Two (2) recent passport size photographs of the applicant, with white background, must be provided. The photograph must be of a full face view; side or angle views are not acceptable. One of the photographs should be stapled to the application form, with the other loosely attached to it.
4.    The applicant should also comply with all the instructions applicable to your specific visa type contained in the column to the left of this page.
5.    Please note that all visa fees are payable online by the Registered Visa Agent, NOT TO THE EMBASSY. Where applicable, the visa fee will be incorporated into the charge levied by the Registered Agent for processing of your visa application. The current visa fees are: VIP Business Visa – S.R. 1000, Business Visa Multiple Entry – S.R. 500, Business Visa Single Entry – S.R. 200, Work, Residency, Transit and Student – .R. 50.
