    Assalmualikum Yaseer Bhai,
    My name is Ayub n i m working here in Khober, i got family visa last month for my wife n child, but while doing payment i paid 4000sr instead of 2000sr considering 2000sr per head, visa people took all 4000sr. when i went to visa officer after 1 week in this regard he said money will come after 2 week in bank but still 1 month pass i didnt received my money yet. Can u advise in this matter or any such experience you aware to give some necessary sugessions.

    Thanks you

    • Yasir Imran says:

      Wa Alekum slam brother, sorry I cannot help in this. You have to contact related departments.

    • Waqaar Mohammed says:

      Dear Ayub,

      I believe if you make the payment from your online account then there is an option to withdraw your money, check for this also some time it works if you have a bank account,
      all you have to do is to click on ministry and select import labour>> then family visa payment >> then the page will open wihich will ask you to make payment from your account > then if there is any outstanding balance you will get the option to withdraw your money. try this insha allah you may get the money back
