My visa expires on April 2nd, 2018. Can I leave Saudi Arabia on the last day of my visa expiry?

  • If you're leaving on the 2nd of April then why not? – Newton Mar 28 '18 at 10:48
  • You are fine, but if you have travel delays and get delayed past midnight, then you will be in breach of your visa. The risk falls on you if you decide to leave things until the last possible moment. – Jim MacKenzie Mar 28 '18 at 14:56

You're taking a really close call, but if you're at the airport and you've checked in before your visa expires, you will officially be "In Transit.", even if the plane is delayed.

NOTE: Personally I would aim to leave at least 24 hours before the end of my visa, and I generally leave even earlier than that.

If you overstay your visa (even by one day) and they don't accept your excuse, you can be banned from the respective country, so leave a day early or plan accordingly.
