Attestation Of Distance Education


 I have a degree which is obtained through distance education; will Saudi Embassy attest this degree? Will I be able to bring my family here in KSA upon this degree?[irp]
 Question by Visitor: Steve, it is so good to see people take care of something which is so important to be known while living in Saudi Arabia. I have few issues with me and would appreciate if you could answer them. I did my B. Tech Engineering in Distance education & I recently came to know that Saudi council of engineering has stopped approving distance education. Is it true?
 Answer by Steve: Normally, they don’t accept distance education degrees. However, there are few cases when they accept the degree and attest them even when they are secured through distance education. I think they accept distance education degrees from famous institutes only.
 Question by visitor: My profession in iqama is marketing specialist. It is present in your above eligible profession list to bring the family. I have completed my attestation and translation procedures in India for my marriage certificate. But my degree certificate is not getting approved by Saudi embassy. In this case, how I can bring my wife in the permanent visa.
 Answer by Steve: If your degree is not attested by the Saudi Embassy, you cannot bring your wife to Saudi Arabia. If you have some other degree which is not a distant learning education degree, you can change your profession and apply for the permanent family visa again.
