Procedure for Applying Family Visit Visa through Metrash

By special number

I recently got approval for Family Visit Visa through Metrash for my family(Mother in Law and Father in Law) and wanted to post the recent procedure so that it will be useful for someone who try for it.

Following are the required documents.

1)Person applying for visa should have e contract with moi.

2)Go the metrash and open visa section and start new application.

3) It Will ask for some details and you can fill it.For name it will have 5 blocks and you have to fill all blocks then only it will accept the application.If name is short,you can add the concerned persons parents name and end the block with the persons last name so that it  fills all the 5 blocks.

4) upload your QID,Company NOC Letter( in the birth certificate area) and the relatives passport copies in the next upload area.(If visa is for wife maybe you need to upload other relevant documents)

5) Then click submit and they will issue a reference number and check status  after few hours.

6)In my case visa is for mother in law and father in law,so when i check after some time i see missing documents status in metrash.

7) So i uploaded my wife QID & Her passport copy and then submit it.

8) after some time the status changed to under process and it was showing visa number.

9) And the same day visa was ready to print.

This process was very fast & easy  and I saved a lot of time and was able to get visa on the same day i submit it.Hope this info will be helpful for someone who try for family visit visa.

Hi. I am trying to apply visit visa for my mother. As it's asking the birth certificate, I used the same passport copy there as the b.certificate is unavailable at the moment. Now it's status is missing doc (certificate).

Should uploading my QID/company NOC solve the problem? There can be 1 image uploaded for 1 section.

Please help.
