Visa services for investors: Set up your business here with us!
The Saudi Arabian government currently issues investor-class visa services through the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA). The purpose is to facilitate and encourage foreign investment in the country. Many other nations offer comparable investment-based visas as a path to permanent residency and ultimate citizenship as a selling feature to overseas investors. However, the Saudi Arabian investment class visa only allows for a limited stay (through an Iqama, a residency permit).
Whether foreign workers, visitors, students, or religious pilgrims, all entry visas to Saudi Arabia are transitory. Immigrants are viewed as ex-pats and temporary residents. In that sense, visitors would still need sponsorship from a company or organization to enter the country. There is no unified government entity in charge of supervising immigration into the country. That is why separate branches of government regulate immigrant type entry applications and visas independently within their jurisdiction. For example, Saudi Arabian embassies around the world issue haj and Umrah visas. They are subject to annual quota limits for visas issued by the Ministry of Haj. On the other hand, enterprises seeking to hire foreign workers must first apply to the Ministry of Labor.
The opportunity to self-sponsor using their firms, rather than relying on a third-party or individual Saudi Arabian sponsor, is the most significant benefit for foreign investors who enter the country on investor visas. The Kafala system, which is in place in some form or another in most GCC countries (except for Bahrain, which has its own Labor Market Regulation Authority), ties a foreign citizen to a local sponsor who applies for residency on his or her behalf, allowing the foreigner to legally remain in the country.
