Arrow Distance Learning degree attestation for Saudi Arabia

Hi all, first post here and I am hoping that someone could guide me. I have accepted a job offer with one of the companies under PIF. To get the Saudi visa/iqama, I need to get my degree attested from UKSACB. While reading online information, I have noticed that distance learning degrees aren’t usually attested by UKSACB. My degree is from the University of Portsmouth that was completed (through DL) while working in the UK. Is there any way around? Has anyone managed to get their UK DL degree attested? Any help or advice will be appreciated.

Based on experience of a year ago, unlikely to get attested by UK Saudi Bureau unless you can get exemption. PIF’s more likely to be able to give you exemption letter. Speak to your HR/Recruiter and im sure they’ll help.

Many thanks for your advice. I have informed the onboarding team accordingly and waiting for their response.

Even if you manage to get an exemption letter for the work visa, please also check the dependent visa requirements. You are likely to face a similar problem when processing family visas.
