"Incredible post! It's rare to see such complex procedures broken down with this level of clarity. I’m curious, though, how often do the regulations around transit visas change? Also, how does Saudi Wakala stay updated with these changes?


I hereby wish to be guided with the procedure to follow for a South African company to register as Third Party or Courier Service

Good day. I received a job offer from a gym in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. They told me that my certificate needed to match my visa document on their side. Or something similar to this... I am not sure what to do or where to start. How do I verify my gymnastics certificate?
