Holders of Permanent Premium Residency (PPR) cards can stay in the Kingdom for 60 days after the cancelation of the special residence permits.

Their stay can be extended by the chief of the Premium Residency Center for a maximum of 180 days from the date of the cancelation of PPR.

The PPR regulations do not mention any taxes or fees on remittances by PPR holders, the center said.

Those applying for PPR must submit a clearance certificate from their employers. If an employee decides to continue his job for which had been hired then he has to rectify his contractual status in terms of his rights and commitments.

The children of PPR holders will not have any special privileges in admission to government schools and universities.

PPR holders cannot have visa-free entry into GCC countries unlike Saudis.

An expat married to a Saudi woman is not directly entitled to get PPR, the center clarified. They have to follow all procedures and fulfill all conditions to get a PPR.
