The General Directorate of Passports clarified through its official Twitter account that dependent fee will not be refunded to expat family members who have opted to leave the Kingdom on final exit before the expiry of their iqamas.
The dependent fee, introduced by Saudi Arabia in 2017, is linked with a renewal of iqama or issuance of exit and re-entry visa or final exit visa, whichever comes first. It is mandatory for expatriate families to settle the dependent fee amount for all its dependent members during iqama renewal. However, exit re-entry process can be done against single individual dependent by paying the fee till the date of the validity of iqama.
