Illegal Foreigners Given 6-Month Amnesty

The Arab News Online published news on September 22, 2010 that Saudi Arabia has announced a six-month amnesty for the hundreds of illegal foreigners overstaying their visas, saying they would be allowed to leave the Kingdom without punishment.

The Interior Ministry said the amnesty would cover those who arrived in the Kingdom on Haj, Umrah, visit or any other type of visas which had expired, or violated Passport Department regulations. “They have been advised to complete the necessary procedures for their departure by reporting to the nearest Department for Foreigners’ Affairs (Wafideen) from Sept. 25, 2010 to March 23, 2011,” the ministry said in a brief announcement.

The ministry has advised all overstayers and other illegal aliens to benefit from the pardon and leave the Kingdom before the grace period. “Violators caught after the grace period will receive tough punishment including jail and fine,” it added.
