The General Directorate of Passports announced the start of work on a host visa through the Absher platform.

It is noteworthy that Saudi passports announced at the beginning of last December about a host visa, where a host visa service was currently included in the Absher system, which allows citizens and residents to host those who wish to have their personal sponsorship for a period of up to 90 days.

Passports and the Ministry of Hajj are working to approve the mechanism of work with the new visa, which is one of the modern services that the Ministry of Interior works to organize through passports, and it allows a host visa for the next person to move freely and live, whether in a hotel or residential apartments or inside a hosted residence.

The cost of the visa per year is 500 riyals per person, paid through the ATM, with the ability to repeat recruitment 3 times a year through the Absher application, as it enables it to register all data and information for a host from different countries.

The host's visa enables its holder to roam freely in the Kingdom and attend tourist activities, and facilitates the hosting of 3-5 pilgrims, visas for citizens issued to the civil registry and residing on the residence, and the evaluation will be for first-degree relatives or whoever he wants to host, and the host must take care of them and serve them until their departure .

Saudi Arabia had recently provided a tourist visa service, which has a fee of 440 riyals, is granted through the website, or upon arrival and is valid for one year from the date of issuance, and is granted to those who have reached the age of 18, but otherwise, a guardian is required and a residence period is granted For 90 days in one year.
