• Degree Certificate / Technical Diploma of the applicant attested by Saudi Embassy in home country and Ministry of Foreign Affairs in KSA.
• Letter from your sponsor directed to Jawazat (Passport Dept.) requesting them to process visa for your family. This letter should be stamped by the Chamber of Commerce.
• Pay visa fee of SR2000 per family member through SADAD. You can pay this fee from your internet or phone banking.
• Submit all the documents at Jawazat Office. There are several Jawazat offices in big cities. If you are living in Jeddah, you need to go to Istaqdam Jawazat Office situated in Rehab District. Take token, go to the counter when your number displays and submit; copies of Attested Degree Certificate along with translation, Attested marriage certificate, Attested birth certificates of all your children, Copies of passports of all the members applying for the visa, Your passport copy, Copy of Iqama and letter from the sponsor stamped by Chamber of Commerce.

• Officer will check the documents and will ask you to wait for a while. After around 30 minutes, you will be called again at the window and if everything goes fine, you will be given a yellow slip. This yellow slip is actually visa for your family. Take the slip and check if the names and other details mentioned on the yellow slip are the same as mentioned on the passport and other formal documents.

• Send the Yellow slip to your native country-to your family. They can approach Travel Agents or Overseas Employment agents to get visa stamped on the passport from Saudi Embassy. They will charge you from SR 400 to SR 500 per passport and take care of all the requirements.
• In some countries like Pakistan, Saudi Government has established Eitamad Centers. You do not need to contact agents in case Eitamad Centers are established in your native country. You directly go to them with the report of medical test and they will complete the procedures.
• All your family members will have to go through a medical test before you approach Saudi Embassy to get visa stamped. You can do it from approved laboratory.

After arrival of your family to Saudi Arabia, do medical test and apply for Iqama. Report of the test needs to be given to the Government Relations Officer (PRO) of your company.
