How to check change of sponsorship / iqama transfer status online

change of sponsership

The Ministry of Labor (MOL) & Ministry of Interior (MOI) have asked all expatriates to rectify their status and transfer sponsorship to sponsor(kafeel) with whom they are working.

Many a times, the mandoob / HR persons do not give proper response or information with regards to the status of transfer of sponsorship. And then there might be the old/previous kafeel who will be threatening to put huroob (absconding report) if you do not do it fast.

Fortunately, Ministry of Labor provides the status of transfer of sponsorship online. Also you can see the status in Jawazat system. For more details see What is the Name of My Current Sponsor

Unfortunately there is no English version for the site.

Hence, we give below the step by step procedure:


Before you begin, we suggest that you use “Google Chrome” browser which has translate option. This way you can translate the page from Arabic to English when you get the results. For details regarding how to use “Google Chrome” for translation click here.

Click on Ministry of Labor website link given below:

Ministry of Labor website




Then click the drop down menu and select the last item. See the photo below for more details.

Iqama transfer status 1


Then go to the last item on drop down menu and click it.


Iqama transfer status 2


The click the radio button & enter your iqama number

Iqama transfer status 3

You get the status of your Transfer.



If you get something which looks like this, then Congratulations !!!

Iqama transfer status 4

Your sponsorship has been transferred as per Ministry of Labor records.

The page shows the name of your New sponsor and date when the transfer happen in Arabic(Hejri) dates. To convert to English/Gregorian dates click here.

However, in order to complete transfer, your sponsor/company HR needs to visit  jawazat and complete the process there.

Keep following with your company/sponsor to get the new iqama issued.

One of our reader said his status revert to his previous kafeel (sponsor) as his new sponsor did not follow up the process with Jawazat for more than 3 months. Don’t know how far this is true, but thought our readers should know. If anyone experience similar situation, do share your experience.


However if you get the below page, it means that there was no transfer request made in the last 3 months. You need to follow up with your company to do the needful. If claim that they applied, then ask them what is the application number (Raqam at-talab). If you have the “raqam at-talab” / application number, you can check the status here.  All the best !

    Assalamu Alaikkum,
    My name is sarath and id no. 2308990981. My old sponser is in red category and last month i got new job in other company. My old sponser asked 9000 SR. for the release. With the help of the embassy, I arranged new passport and submitted to the new sponser by October 22. But now my id is not showing in the ministry sites. When I contacted the new sponser, he told it will take time to transfer. In the ministry of labour site, my sponser is the old one. Please help me… Thank you

  • Muhammad

    AssalamuAlaikum ! Jazaak Allah for putting your efforts to resolve the expats issues regarding Iqama transfer and other.
    Today I got to know about my iqama transferring process status, with the help of your website expats support service and I got my application number as well but my status is ‘ Under Study ‘ because first sponsor did not yet give an access on government’s system to transfer me to the new employer. First sponsor has already taken 4000/-SR and handed over me my Iqama ,passport and released letter consists on three copies on 3rd Novermber 2013 and soon I got that letter’s 3 copies chambered from the Chamber of Commerce.
    What to do now to get access from the first sponsor and if he asks more money for that then? but someone has more money then answer is in ‘ yes ‘ but if I can’t afford anymore then is there any further possibility to get complete released from my first sponsor? please reply me soon or till tomorrow.
    But first of All I have to make or maintain more strong contact to Allah Subhanau to resolve my problems. Because He is the only Doer.

    Jazaak Allah again I highly appreciate your website support.

        • Thaj

          Hi Moideen Saleem,
          I contacted my old sponsor’s concerned person last week, he told me tht they finished everything from their side, as they gave me the release letter. they have nothing to do at Makthabul Amal, you just follow up with your new company Mandoob.
          Today my chairman called the mandoob n asked him abt this, he told insha allah, it ll b ok within one or two week…as per my understanding, if they really want to make it fast, they can..the delay is mainly due to the laziness of present Mandoob…

          • moidin saleem

            dear thaj
            this is common dialog in all company insha alha with in a week problem will solve.but i want to know what kind of problem this is? because my new company they are not interested in my case they are big company i am nothing for them i was transferred only for job purpose. can you please check me what kind of problem this is.

    hai dears ,

    can any one provide a clear cut picture for sponsorship transfer? my new company requested by online and now it shows status “under study” , as per my kafeel he accepted already but no status change? somebody says another status will show other than “under study ” before approval if kafeel accepted. Any one can give a clear idea about this pls..?

    • Mohammed

      Hello Nishad,
      I applied for transfer 3 months ago and was rejected 2 times. My new sponsor send the request and it showed ‘under study’ for few weeks then denied it happen twice couldn’t figure out the problem. Same as your case my old sponsor(mediator) keep on saying he accepted the online request. My new sponsor kept on insisting me to follow up with my old sponsor. Finally I got a contact number of my Direct sponsor or Kafeel so on requesting couple times he accepted the request and now online status shows ‘approved’. Waiting for my new iqama now.

      My suggestion to you is contact to your old sponsor or visit him personally and request him accept online request and ask prove of acceptance.

      Hope this will help you!

However, when the sponsor took my iqama to the jawazat, they have told that it is not yet updated on their system. The company has already deposited SAR 2000/- on my behalf. How long does it take for the update from MOL to MOI?

My second company requested for a transfer online which was accepted but I did not do the Jawazat follow up and hence on the MOL account, I am still with my first employer. Now, my new and third sponsor has requested for transfer but my first and original sponsor says he did not receive any request. MOL website says that its “UNDER STUDY”..

    Does anybody tell me how long does it take for the study to complete?
    Also, if MOL shows under study, does it mean that my original sponsor will not receive the online request? Am I right?

    Anybody has any idea where I might be stuck and how it can be sorted out?

  • Naaji Md

    dear’s how can i change another company via transfer visa in saudi arabia

  • dharvesh

    Just a quick update on my experience on Iqama transfer in Feb 2018

    1. When new employer requests transfer, it will arrive at the current sponsor system on the same day. If it doesnt arrive it means, there is some issue for the company with MOL

    2. It will be in the status “Under study” till the current sponsor approves

    3. Once approved, it will be in the status “pending from MOI”

    4. Pending from MOI will be changed to approved like this “The worker’s service was transferred to a new employer” with new sponsor and date. This will happen within 15 mins

    5. New sponsor now should do the formalities at MOI.

    • royski_yanbu82

      Dharvesh, my new employer sent the Demand Letter to my current sponsor. Upon follow up, my current employer advised me that he received it and will do the coordination. However, I checked the MOL website to verify the status of the service transfer and I got the message: No transfer request has been made for the worker.
      For this message, should I directly follow up my new sponsor? The Demand Letter has been endorsed to my current employer but it was not acknowledged by MOL. Are they missing a step here? Please advise.

      • dharvesh

        If its not showing in MOL then your new sponsor has not raised the request or MOL rejected it.

        • royski_yanbu82

          I see. Thanks for feedback and tip. So, it is clear then that the DEMAND LETTER is not enough. They have to also submit an ONLINE request to MOL website. Is this correct?

          • dharvesh

            Thats correct. Demand letter is purely documentation. Process is strictly online. Only via online request and approval, this will work

          • royski_yanbu82

            I just got the feedback from my current sponsor and you are indeed correct when emphasizing that all labor transfers are processed thru the online system. I just also learned that they have an issue with the MOL because of some deficient requirements but they are working on this so that they can finally proceed. My issue is the timeline. I have only until April 16 (almost 2 weeks from now) for my last working day with my current employer. My question is, after my current sponsor approves the online request, usually how long is the approval process of MOL transfer from “PENDING UNDER MOI” to Approved? I just want to make sure that the remaining days I have is enough to process everything.

          • dharvesh

            Pending under moi to approved changes within 15 mins

          • royski_yanbu82

            Thank you Dharvesh for sharing this over. It is a big help. I have one more query if you may (pardon me for being too nosy) about the End of Service Benefits (as it is considered resignation). My current company advised me that since I am not going on final exit due to local transfer (last day of work is 16 April 2018), they will only release my ESB/final payment once the local transfer request has been completed. Has this also been your case? I have googled it and read in Saudi Labor Law Article 88 which states that “Upon the end of the worker’s service, the employer shall pay his wages and settle his entitlements within a maximum period of one week from the date of the end of the contractual relation”. Hence payment of ESB should not be dependent on the completion of the transfer process. Did you encounter the same? Appreciate any thoughts on this.

          • dharvesh

            I think that should be ok. Because u will get esb anyways as per saudi law and saudi rules for esb is excellent. Dont worry about it

  • I have tried to change my profession.. I was on dependent visa and tried to change my profession to doctor.. the application got approved from ministry of labour and instead of the name of new sponsor, it is written that the application was rejected by ministry of interiors.. when I asked my new sponsor they said if we submit the medical report l, then only the new iqama is issued.. is it true?? Or the application is completely rejected?? Plz answer .. plz check the reply I got from ministry of labour ..
