for travelling by road, you should have valid visit visa of atleast 3 months! but in case of tourist visa, you are not allowed to go!!
can i fly and if my visa is expired here and i got new visa in saudi and if i have an ticket from saudi to my country i think there must be no problem. am i right
if you have any relative in ksa, can apply visit visa for you, you cant travel unless you have visa for the destination if you go by air!!
I UNDERSTAND MY BRO BUT I THINK U DID NOT GET MY QUESTION IF I GET AN UMRAH VISA FROM AN AGENT AND IF IAM EXITING THEN WHY SHOULD THERE BE A PROBLEM IF U KNOW BETTER THEN PLS TELL ME IN DETAILS WHERE IAM WRONG MY PLAN IS TO GET THE VISA FROM THE AGENT AND I WILL TRAVEL TO SAUDI WITH UMRAH VISA AND MY QATAR VISA WILL BE EXPIRED AND IF I TRAVEL TO SAUDI WITH A VALID VISA AND EXIT TICKET TO MY COUNTRY THERE MUST BE NO PROBLEM.
From what little I know, if your tourist visa expires on the 15th, you have to leave the country before or on the 15th. That's what a Visa with an expiry date means anywhere in the world! You cannot exit the country, legally, by road/rail/air after the 15th. And what's with the all caps writing?
As far I know you can not get an umra visa on these basis.. I think you must have a return visa in order to get an Umra visa.. better to confirm from the Agent...
I am in a similar situation as your's. Which agent are you using? Can I get their name and number? I called Saudi Embassy and they said that they will issue the Umrah visa only if your Qatar tourist visa is valid for 3+ weeks. For Indian passport, I believe even a return visa will be required. I don't have to worry about the second requirement, but I posted this thread earlier: http://www.qatarliving.com/node/1608199 to figure out how to refresh my tourist visa
