Saudi Gazette – The General Directorate of Passports (Jawazat) announced on Sunday that it is in the process of extending the visitor identity cards for Yemenis for a period of another six months in line with a directive from Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman.
The directorate has completed all arrangements for online extension of the cards, the validity of which will expire on Dec. 31. The process of extending the cards had started on Dec. 25 and it will continue up till Jan. 3, the Saudi Press Agency reported quoting Jawazat sources.
There is no need for Yemenis to visit the Jawazat offices personally to extend their ID cards. They can do it from the Abshir service of the Interior Ministry’s portal (www.moi.gov.sa) after making online payment of SR100 through bank accounts.
The card will be printed and delivered to the concerned user through the Wasel service of Saudi Post. In the case of those who have no postal address and have not registered their address on Wasel, a link will appear for them to register their address on Abshir to receive the card, the directorate said.
