Important Points to Consider

  • If your application status reads “Submitted” and your visa number reads “Not Issued,” it indicates the Ministry of Interior (MOI) has not yet accepted it or that you have not yet visited a Chamber of Commerce (COC).
  • Suppose you have previously received a permanent family visa approval SMS from the Ministry of the Interior. In that case, you can view the status of your application as “Approved,” along with the visa number and Reference Number. The “Open” link, which is directly below “Action” and next to “Reference Number,” allows you to view all the details of the issued Visa, including those of the Sponsor and the Applicant.
