Passport authority responds on Twitter to expats who are currently outside the Kingdom and whose exit and re-entry visas have expired.

The General Directorate of Saudi Passports (Jawazat) announced on Tuesday that expatriate residents abroad will not be permitted to return to the Kingdom until after the end of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In a series of tweets, the passport authority said: "No entry for expat residents until the end of the pandemic. You will not be allowed to return till the end of the coronavirus pandemic crisis, and the decision on return will be announced officially, and under a valid entry visa."

"In case a resident is outside the Kingdom, the mechanism for extending the exit and return visa will be announced through official channels after the end of the coronavirus pandemic crisis," the authority added.

The authority went on to say that new decisions or instructions will be announced through official channels.
