If my passport will expire in less than 6 months, can I get an exit entry visa?

The passport will still be valid when I return to KSA.

the terms are detailed on the abshir website or any exit/re-entry printout, why do you expect better quality information from internet forum posters?

He is right

If the official information is there, use that. Do not rely on some crazy oldtimer like me who left Hejaz-Nejd in 2011.

by way of explanation of my arcane terminology -

Why? That's easy to answer. Because it is often the case that personal experiences belie and contradict what is "officially" printed. Or what's printed is unclear or incomplete. Or it's out of date. Or it's found only in Arabic. And so on.

Let's not forget the hullaballoo raised in this very forum a few years back when the question of who should pay for "visas" and in particular the "iqama" was raised.

People were quoting "official" documents to prove that the employer should be paying for the iqama. There was even an article in the Arab News affirming the employers' responsibility in this case.

Bottom line? Most iqamas and visas continue to be paid for by the employEE.....not the employER, regardless of what has been officially declared. Draw your own conclusions about what that means in the larger context.

Another example of this kind of thing, of course, is the recurrent question of whether the employer has the right to keep an employee's passport. Officially (supposedly), the answer is no....this is not allowed. In fact, it happens all the time willy nilly.

Remember: in the Kingdom, what you see is seldom what you get.
