Expatriates who left the Kingdom on a final exit visa require providing proof of a final exit visa in order to get stamped on a new visa starting in 07/01/2019. Indian local newspapers reported Wednesday quoting a circular issued to travel agents from Saudi Arabia’s Mumbai consulate.
As per circular, the new regulations will be implemented from January 07. The new law is applicable for those who have worked in Saudi Arabia and stayed outside the Kingdom for a long period.
However, it is not clear if the same will be applicable to all countries or only for India.
