Embassy Urges Filipinos to Go to Jawazat for Exit


More than 700 get Exit Visa since 3 July, Over 700 Repatriated on GPH (Government of the Philippines) Expense

RIYADH, 28/07/2013: The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh urges all Filipinos in Riyadh and Eastern Region who will go on final exit and are qualified under the guidelines of the correction period, which has been extended to 3 November 2013, to secure their exit visa as soon as possible.

The Embassy has also booked and purchased 652 tickets for distressed Filipinos in Riyadh, and 123 for those in the Eastern Region or a total of 775 as of 27 July, with around 150 passengers still being booked on flights before the end of this month.

“We think the process to get a final exit visa in Riyadh is simpler than before 3 July. A person who is qualified under the guidelines and has no pending case gets their exit visa on the same day. This system is simpler than in the past where there was a waiting period, and the person had to go to the airport Jawazat to get their exit visa number”, said Ambassador Tago.

“I visited the Jawazat at Shumeisy several times since 3 July, and the process is now much simpler. I thanked the Jawazat officials who have been very accommodating and they stressed their full cooperation to ensure that everyone is helped,” Ambassador Tago said.

The schedule for females at the Jawazat Wafideen is Tuesdays and Wednesdays (830PM to 230AM during Ramadhan) and Thursdays during the same time for males. Females who do not have their iqama or passport used during entry into the Kingdom and who have not undergone fingerprinting and other biometric intake should coordinate with POLO Riyadh for processing at the Social Welfare Authority.

The Embassy reminds all males to ensure that they have paid their traffic violation penalties, and have cleared their record of any vehicles previously on their record.

The Embassy is ready to help clear the record of those with a case filed against them at the police or Jawazat. END
