The Peninsula -- The Ministry of Interior (MoI) yesterday launched a new service that will enable people to apply for family visit visa through MoI website and Metrash2.


This came within the framework to develop services to the public. Brigadier Mohammed Ahmed al-Ateeq, Director-General of the Department of Passport and Expatriates Affairs at MoI, said the new service has been added to the various e-services already provided by MoI by the use of modern technology in providing high quality services to residents and their families.


He added that this service is easy, and in case of some missing documents or any other issue, the applicant will get the required alert.  Al-Ateeq said that this e-service is for the purpose of providing family visit visa to expatriates in the country. He pointed out that the Department has evaluated this electronic service over two months and proved a great success by 100%.


Moreover, he said, the Department will evaluate the service daily and will work to develop it in order to reduce the number of visitors to the Department.
