In Saudi Arabia you can invite your family on the basis of visit visa. The family can stay for 30 days or 90 days, which is depend on the duration of the visit visa. But you can extend the duration of your family visit visa up to 180 days.
If the duration of family visit visa is only 30 days then you have option to extent it 5 time which means that your family can stay in Saudi Arabia for 180 day. In case of 90 days visit visa, the extension duration is 90 days more.
But you need to follow some procedure for this extension on time otherwise you will lose the opportunity of extension.
