The process was quite easy. I just went to their website and requested a form to fill out. After completing the form, I mailed everything back to them, expecting that my card would be arriving in the mail at some point in the future. But shortly after that, I received an email telling me my card had been ready for pickup.
It only took a week or so for the whole process to be completed. Awdah does require documents from you like your certification from Pakistan or Turkey as well as your educational degree (and then translated into Arabic if you’re applying from Turkey) but overall it’s pretty smooth and hassle-free.
