Documentation Requirements

Saudi Arabia – Documentation Requirements

Compliance, documentation requirements for visa’s and attestation of your qualifications.

To work in Saudi Arabia there are a few stages you need to go through to get your visa and qualify your credentials.

Once your job application is successful you should start the documentation process. 

It’s a good idea to have all the documents you can ready as digital copies before you start the application process to stop unnecessary delays.

The good news is that we are here every step of the way to help and guide you through this process and our dedicated compliance partner can answer any questions you have.

A brief synopsis of the process is below:

1. Attestation of your professional and educational qualifications

You firstly have to apply to verify (attestation) your professional and educational certifications. This will most likely take up to 8 – 12 weeks on average and it’s best to get everything as a digital copy so you can easily forward it onto the relevant people if need be.

You will need the following documents from your prospective employer before starting this process:

a) Job offer letter / letter of invitation from your prospective employer which has been verified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Saudi Arabia. It must list all your families’ names that will be coming with you to live in Saudi Arabia and show your new job title

You will need to provide the following documents yourself along with the above:

a) Covering letter addressed to the Saudi Cultural Attaché requesting the attestation of your documentation stating the reason why you want this to be done which we can provide on your behalf

b) Copy of your passport with minimum 6 months validity remaining

c) Copy of all your professional and educational qualification certificates (click here to see what qualifications you need to register as a consultant in Saudi Arabia)

d) Signed consent letter (we can provide you with the template or you can download it from the Saudi Arabian Embassy website)

e) Self-addressed envelope with full return address

2. Applying for your work visa

You will need a copy of the following documents to send to the Saudi Arabian Embassy. We have included additional information you will need to send if you are also applying for residential permits for your family.

a) Copy of your professional and educational qualifications which have been attested by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (process above)

b) Job offer letter / letter of invitation from your prospective employer which has been verified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Saudi Arabia. It must list all your families names that will be coming with you  to live in Saudi Arabia and show your new job title

c) Copy of visa authority showing the job for which you are being recruited

d) Copy of your current license registration

e) Completed work visa application (http://www.saudiembassy.net/services/Visa_Application_Forms.aspx)

f) Medical report for yourself and family members who may be coming with you which needs to be attested by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.  There may be specific doctors who will enable your visa to be processed quicker, please get in touch for more information. (Children over 16 only)

g) Marriage and birth certificates for all accompanying family (must be attested by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office)

h) Your passport and those of other family members coming with you (they must be valid for at least 6 months and have 2 clear pages)

i) 2 passport photo’s for each individual

Costs

It will cost you approximately £600 to apply for a visa and get all your documents attested in for Saudi for a family of 4 with 2 kids under 16. Please CONTACT US for more information regarding costs to attest your documents and apply for your visa.
