Assalaamu alaykum warahmatullah,

For those who have been accepted this year…

More than one of the brothers has asked about the website which they are being told to register on by the embassies.

I spoke in detail with the people in charge today, and they were shocked when they saw it.

They say that it is totally unnecessary, since the university has already paid all of the relevant charges, and basically you end up paying twice for something you shouldn’t have to pay for at all.

They recommend the following procedure instead:-

Go to the Saudi Foreign Ministry Website here.

Choose the second link from the top “Search for visa issued from The Ministry of Labor \ Recruitment Agency \ MOFA

You will be asked for two numbers, the first is the visa number. You have to call the university for this, if you don’t already have it. The second is the ID number, this is the university’s ID, which is 7000965068.

This should give you everything you need, without having to pay anything, or register anywhere else.

However, in case you are somehow forced to apply using the enjazit service, then the details which I mentioned seem to be correct:

Visa Type: Educational

Sponsor Name: The Islamic University of Madinah Sponsor Address: The Islamic University of Madinah, Al-Madinah An-Nabawiyyah, KSA Sponsor ID: 7000965068.

Fill your name in English and Arabic.

Arrival – By Air, Jeddah, Single Entry

Please post a comment if you have successfully got your visa using either of the two methods above, or if you know of a better way.

I ask Allah to make it easy for all,

Wassalaamu alaykum warahmatullah,
