  1. Really informative forum and Allah bless you for your good deeds. I got visa on 3/15/2015 for my parent with duration of 30 days but one of my colleague is saying that now you can renew it only twice. Is there any such policy or restriction regarding visa renewal for different people. Please reply so that I can plan accordingly. Thanks in advance.
