Support for Saudi Arabia

All applicants of Saudi Arabia must present themselves in person to the intermediary Service Providers "VFS Tasheel International" in Berlin or Frankfurt. Which service center the traveler can visit depends on the following points:

  • Applicants whose invitation is issued on Berlin may apply at VFS in Berlin. Applicants whose invitation is issued on Frankfurt can only apply with a VIP appointment (at an additional cost).

  • Applicants whose invitation is issued on Frankfurt may apply at VFS in Frankfurt. Applicants whose invitation is issued on Berlin can only apply with a VIP appointment (at an additional cost).

The addresses are:

VFS Tasheel International                    VFS Tasheel International
Jägerstr. 41                                            Gutleutstr. 80
10117 Berlin                                           60329 Frankfurt

Without an appointment, a substantial surcharge will be levied.

Even though this complicates matters, BUSINESS VISUM can still help you obtain any required visa. We offer the following services:

1. Obtaining the authentication by the IHK (Chamber of Commerce)

Should your visa require the presentation of an official letter by the German company seconding the applicant, this letter needs to be certified by the IHK. BUSINESS VISUM can take care of that, no matter where your company is based in Germany (there is one exception: Hamburg).

Just send your official letter to our office in Berlin (important: the letter must be signed in blue ink/biro, and the company’s trade register number should be stated) together with our order form for Saudi-Arabia; we will do the rest for you (including all fees and charges). BUSINESS VISUM will need one day to submit your papers to the IHK, afterwards the certified document will be sent back to you immediately.

2. Preliminary Examination of your documents

It is more than annoying for both you and the respective passengers if you travelled to our offices in Berlin or Frankfurt, just to be informed your papers (or your photographs/passports) do not meet the requirement (so your trip was in vain). It doesn’t have to be this way! BUSINESS VISUM can check all your documents in advance: Is everything there? Is everything in order? Just send all the papers asked for in the respective visa requirements to us via e-mail (saudi-arabien[at]business-visum.de), and we will promptly inform you whether all requirements are met. The following documents are necessary for the preliminary examination (to be sent via e-mait to saudi-arabien[at]business-visum.de)

a) photocopy of passport (laminated page); clearly legible

b) scan of a passport photograph, (in *.jpeg format, 300dpi or better); the photograph’s original must be enclosed with the original visa application form submitted to the VFS. The following requirements must be met:

  • the photograph is not more than 6 months old
  • in colour, with a white background, frontal shot
  • no jewelry may be visible on the picture

c) copy of visa application form

d) copy of business letter

e) copy of invitation (We are happy to help you with the procurement. Further information here.

BUSINESS VISUM will gladly take care of this: We will do our best to find an appointment according to your wishes. For this service, the following documents are required (to be sent via e-mail to: saudi-arabien[at]business-visum.de; if you already sent the respective documents to us for preliminary examination, just stating the desired date will suffice – kindly state at least one alternative date):

  • copy of business letter
  • copy of invitation
  • copy of certificate of registration of both the German and the Saudi company
