Hey all,
I have a question about the visa documents. I've been teaching in Korea for the last 3 years and I've been told I should get a criminal check, and my employment cert from my school here, and have them stamped by the Saudi office in Seoul. I will be going back to the USA In April, and will be applying from there. So should I even bother with that? Will a background check from my state suffice? Also what kid of time frame am I looking at to get to Saudi from applying? I've read a lot of places aren't very speedy. Thanks for your help!

I have tried the search function. I've scrolled through pages of this forum looking for info. Unfortunately, anytime I search the page never seems to load, it just stops at a white screen. I'll try with another computer, but that is a problem I've had more than once with this forum. So this time I figured I would be easier to ask to see if anyone could steer me in the right direction.

Make sure to use the search button near the log in... NOT the "site search." Type in your topic and tick "search for all terms." Choose Saudi Arabia on the drop down... hit search

It can be temperamental especially if there are too many threads.

With my visa application, I sent a notarized letter from my local police department. The application process itself only takes a few weeks. It is all the prep work you must do beforehand that is so time consuming. Definitely get a letter from your employer on company letterhead. Stamp, Shmamp.

Ok thanks for the info. I thought that's all I needed but wanted to double check before I leave Korea. Very Happy
