RIYADH: The General Directorate of Passport has announced the extension of visit visas for Yemeni citizens residing in the Kingdom for another six months.

The current visit visas will expire on 20th of Ramadan (June 25). Authorities have finalized all preparations to extend the visas as of 13th Ramadan as a gesture of Kingdom’s continued support to Yemeni people, the announcement said.
However, the Passport Department said it would not accept applications for extending the visas through traditional visits to its offices.
The visas will be extended electronically after payment of the prescribed fees and conduction of the extension procedures through the host account at the “Absher” portal as from Ramadan 13th to 19th and delivery of the visas through the “Wasil” service, the statement added.
