The Premium Residency Center (PRC) annnounced that holders of Permanent Premium Residency (PPR) cards can stay in the Kingdom for 60 days after the cancellation of their PPRs. Under special circumstances, the chief of PRC can extend their stay for a maximum of 180 days starting from the date of cancellation of PPR.


Individuals applying for PPR must submit a clearance certificate from their employers and if an employee decides to continue in his job for which he had been hired, then he should rectify his contractual status in terms of his rights and commitments.


The center added that PPR regulations do not specify any fees or taxes on remittances made by PPR holders.


Entering into a marital relationship with a Saudi women will not automatically entitle expatriates to get a PPR. Instead, they have to follow all procedures and fulfill necessary requirements to get a PPR.


The center clarified that children of PPR holders will not have any special privilege during school or university admission. Unlike Saudis, PPR holders cannot have visa-free entry to GGC countries.
