What is Enjaz? Enjaz is essentially an online application for a Saudi visa that you must submit either on your own or through an approved company, like Swift.
Saudi Arabia is a world apart from our own. Having a chance to visit Saudi Arabia is a rare opportunity, largely because their visas are extremely hard to come by. In order to obtain a visa to Saudi Arabia you will need to have a proper invitation letter from a host within the country. Obtaining such a letter can be nearly impossible without the proper factors on your side. The most common purposes for visiting Saudi Arabia are military visits and business development. If you’re hoping to visit simply as a tourist, you might want to reconsider your travel plans.
However, if you have the opportunity to visit Saudi Arabia, the experience will be well worth the trouble of sorting out your Saudi visas. Factors that will help you obtain a visa include your nationality, your job title, working for a well-known company, the type of visa you apply for, and the province in which you apply. Once you begin the visa application process, you’ll find that Saudi Arabia’s application is much more complicated and strict than other countries. Perhaps no part of the process will make this more clear than Enjaz.
What is Enjaz?
Enjaz is essentially an online application for a Saudi visa that you must submit either on your own or through an approved company that has a working relationship with the Saudi embassies (such as Swift Passport Services). If you decide to go about the application on your own, you can submit your application through Enjazit.com.sa. Perhaps the first thing you’ll notice when you visit the site is that it’s in Arabic, but there is a tab near the top labeled “English” that will allow you to translate the site.
Once you’re on the site, submitting an application is simple enough, as long as you complete the necessary steps outlined to the T. On the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia Washington DC website, the instructions for Enjaz point out that all information must be input in capital letters and exactly as it appears on your passport. Your photograph must be a clear photo that follows all of the required passport photo guidelines exactly. If rules like these are not followed, your application will be rejected.
Once you fill out your application completely, then comes the hard part. People who have used Enjaz report an immense amount of difficulty trying to pay the $10.50 fee required to submit an application. The system will likely decline your credit cards multiple times, possibly for hours, before ever letting a payment go through. Uploading photos into the Enjaz system has also proved to be extremely difficult as well.
So, you can try going about getting a Saudi visa on your own, but we highly suggest going through an approved company. If you have a verified invitation letter in hand, the SPS team can help you obtain a Saudi visa without the hassle and frustration that inevitably follow trying to go it alone.
