Hundreds of expats with residency and labor violations thronged passport department (Jawazat) offices across the Kingdom on Wednesday, the first day of a three-month amnesty period allowing these violators to leave the Kingdom without paying any fines or facing any penalties.

The authorities have made elaborate arrangements to cope with the rush and assist applicants.

Violators can benefit from the amnesty by booking an appointment for processing exit visa formalities through the Ministry of Interior website (www.moi.gov.sa).

On the website’s passports section, users should click on “BOOK AN APPOINTMENT” then enter residence ID (iqama) number and date of birth. The system will fix an appointment for visit. This has come as a big relief to thousands of expatriates who were in a dilemma till Tuesday.
