Saudi Arabia has introduced a 90-days Temporary Work Visa. This visa permits the holder to work in the Kingdom for a specific amount of time. The visa will allow holders to stay for an initial three-month period. A visa holder may also apply for an extension of this visa for a similar period. It allows foreign workers to perform hands-on work activities for a maximum of six months in that one-year period in Saudi Arabia during that duration without applying for residence, an iqama, or a work permit.

Employers who want to bring foreign workers in Saudi Arabia to work for short period can apply for temporary work visa. Saudi Arabia has sponsorship system that means visas are issued by local sponsors. Foreign companies can avail the temporary work visas from our company. The goal of this visa is to make it easier for employers to allow their foreign national employees to work in Saudi Arabia for a short period of time.

Key Differences

Temporary work visa is for those companies that are sending their employees for a short term job or project and can’t afford a long-term employment visa.

A short-term or temporary work visa is a single-entry visa that allows you to work in the Kingdom for a specific period of time. After that period ends, you must leave the country, but there is no limit on the number of applications.

Long-term residency allows you to extend the stay every year. Residency and Iqama has higher costs and complexity but temporary work visa is a simple & cheaper option.


Temporary work visa has similar requirements to an employment visa:

  • A valid passport
  • Passport size photographs
  • Application form
  • Work authorization similar to a work visa
  • Legalized Educational Documents
  • Medical Examination
