Newborns of expats can get visas upon arrival in Saudi Arabia

JEDDAH: Newborns of expatriate residents in Saudi Arabia are allowed to enter the Kingdom without having to obtain a visa in the parent’s home country, the General Directorate of Passports said on Saturday.
The child will be issued a visa upon arrival in the Kingdom, subject to certain conditions, according to comments by the Directorate that were published in 3alyoum news site.
"A visa for the child will be issued at the point of entry on arrival, provided the newborn has an independent passport and that the parents are residents in the Kingdom — where the wife is dependent on her husband,” the Directorate said.
