Default Saudi Cultural Bureau

Hi Guys

Hope everyone is fine
Just wondering if anyone has recently applied to get the degrees attested by Saudi Cultural Bureau as this is now a requirement.

I applied on 15th March, called the Uni today only to find out they haven't requested to verify my degree


does anyone know how long roughly they are taking these days?

Regards
Wahab

I have just been going through this process via a visa agency. The SCB has just taken around 6 weeks to do this part of the process. I believe that most other aspects of getting your visa - FCO, ACRO, Embassy are one or two days.

I also believe that the visa process has just changed which has also slowed things down further.

Do you roughly know how long it took for your employer in saudia to get your visa. Mine is waiting

My first contact with the visa agency who are organising the visa was early February.

We are just at the point now where the visa will be issued.

Like another poster said, it is the first introduction to how things are and will be.
