Telephonic contact for Saudi Interior Ministry

One of the biggest problems facing expatriates working in Saudi Arabia is lack of information on various procedures. Be it iqama - related, traffic fines, extension of visit visa - you name it and there is a complication. Which was one of the reasons why I started this blog five years back and look how popular it has become, thanks to your support.

I keep trying to put as much information as possible in this blog and also keep updating it. The authenticity of the information is personally verified by me before posting it in this blog, which is why this has a very high credibility. If there is anything which would make life easier for expatriates and if this blog has been of some use to someone, then my day has been made.

I would like to inform readers that a telephonic "help line" has been opened by the Saudi Ministry of Interior to help out people with various queries pertaining to their Department. It is a toll-free number. The number is 800 123 5555. I am not sure whether you would be able to get your questions answered satisfactorily, but at least after so many years I find that the existence of such a number is in public domain. In case any of you have used this number, please give your feedback on your experience and I will publish it here so as to help other fellow expatriates.

On another note, I am happy to inform you that this blog can now also be read from your mobile phone.
Hope this post was useful to you. Do let me know your comments.
