2nd Method: Khurooj Nihai Check Using MOL Portal
There is another method to check final exit visa status (khurooj nihai). The method involves the use of the ministry of labor portal. In this method, you need to provide an iqama number and the captcha code. But the fact is that this method doesn’t work anymore.
In fact, by this method, you can check the status only after the respective person has left Saudi Arabia. So, there is no use of it anymore.
You can see that the mol portal is showing the status as ” On The Job.” But, the status in Absher for the same person is “Final Exit Visa.” Hence this method is obsolete now. So always check it in the Absher portal.
Absher is now offering a new service “Awdah” or “Auda”. The purpose of the service is to enable expats to go back to their countries if they have a valid exit re entry visa or a final exit visa. However it only enables to leave Saudi Arabia. The mechanism to return to the Kingdom is not announced yet.
3rd Method: Using Eserve Portal
Many people believe that the final exit can be checked at the eserve portal. But, in reality, the said portal works for exit re-entry visa only. You can check for that type of visas through the portal. We will put the details of a person who has an issued final exit visa and let’s see what the eserve portal tells us about the status.
When we clicked on “Check,” the result was as follows.
Why did the eserve portal result in an error or invalid visa number? Because the portal is made for exit re-entry visas status. Therefore the Absher is the only portal that will show you the status for the final exit.
