Visit visas not to be extended

The Passport Department has decided not to extend visit visas from June 28, Lt. Col. Ahmed Al-Laheedan, department spokesman, told Arab News on Wednesday. He said the measure was taken to give opportunities for others, including Umrah visitors, to come to the Kingdom.
However, Al-Laheedan said visas for Syrians living in the Kingdom would be renewed. He urged all foreigners who have come on visit visas to leave the Kingdom prior to the expiry of their visas to avoid punitive measures.
