The male guardian sign his dependant's passport in person. An applicant also must show a national ID card. In case of women and unmarried minors, an applicant also must bring their family ID card. The passport photo must be taken whilst the applicant is in normal Saudi attire. The photo must be 4" x 6" in size. An applicant must fill the form in both Arabic and English.
