The final exit visa is (also known as “Khuruj Nihai” in Saudi Arabia) the permit to leave the country with the permission of your employer or Kafeel. It is important because you have proof that all your bills, fines, and accounts have been settled before you leave the country. Here I explain a very easy method to Issue a Final Exit Visa in Saudi Arabia.
However, if you permanently leave Saudi Arabia without processing your final exit visa then you will be banned from the country for a minimum of 2 years. After that, if you change your mind and want to come back then you cannot enter the KSA again because of the ban.
