RIYADH: Saudi Arabia announced on Sunday it will extend residency and visitor visas for people still unable to reach the Kingdom due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

The foreign ministry said visas would be automatically extended until Nov. 30 without any charge.

The ministry said the move, which was done in cooperation with the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (National Information Center), the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Interior, comes as part of the Saudi government’s efforts to mitigate the effects of the pandemic.

The ministry added that the beneficiaries have been notified of the extension via email, which includes an attached e-visa form.
