All types of visas issued prior to the suspension of the airport on 13 March have been canceled, and those who obtained them must submit new applications under new procedures according to the terms and controls that will be announced soon.

According to informed sources to Al Qabas, the Ministry of Interior, after studying the matter at several levels and with other relevant bodies, submitted its report including considering all types of visas to be canceled by law, due to the expiration of their period of validity after about 5 months had passed since their issuance. The visas include family, tourist, work, commercial and government, as well as visit visas.
