Managing Inactive Visas (Visa Validation tab)

 

In the Visa Validation tab, you can view and manually update records in Personal ID (IT0185) for inactive visas, which are those that are not effective anymore. For example, when an employee travels abroad and back with a single exit and reentry visa, this document becomes inactive.

The records from this tab are displayed in a list, which shows the application status for each visa. The following statuses are available:

Status

Description

Broken

Indicates that the record has an issue, for example, the visa has a travel date registered to an expat who is outside of KSA.

Cancel exit/reentry visa

Self-explanatory

Confirmed

Self-explanatory

Penalty

Indicates that the record is in violation of a visa term, for example, the travel before date for the visa has expired for an expat who is in KSA.

Searching Inactive Visas

You can search for inactive visas using a number of criteria to narrow your results, such as the application status (for example, to look for canceled visas) or whether the expat is currently inside or outside KSA. Here are some use cases:

Broken visas
  • Search Type: Outside KSA

  • Travel Date: Not empty

  • Return Date: Empty

  • Return Before Date: Before the current date

Visas with penalty
  • Search Type: Inside KSA

  • Travel Date: Empty

  • Travel Before Date: Before the current date

Confirmed visas
  • Search Type: Inside KSA

  • Travel Date: Not empty

  • Return Date: Empty

Unsynchronized visas
  • Search Type: Outside KSA

  • Travel Date: Empty

Updating Application Status for Selected Visas

For each visa record that you want to update, select a new application status that matches its actual situation. You can also update the travel and return dates. Once you are done, choose Save.
