      Congrats !
      As per Ministry of Labor records, your application for transfer has been approved on
      17/12/1434 H (approximately on 22 October, 2013)
      to company/sponsor as mentioned below
      مؤسسة عايض بن على صالح الصيعرى التجارية
      Ayed Bin Ali Saleh Sayari Est.
      (the English translation is approximate)
      However, your HR needs to visit Jawazat and complete the process there also. If they delay for too long, then status will revert.
      So follow up with your company/sponsor to get the iqama.

    I stayed 4 months and left saudi on Jan 2011 with exit-reentry. I don’t have noc and final exit. Jun 2011 and March 2012 i tried with new job offer and visa, both time got rejected in visa stamping. My Iqama and visa expired. Now i got some good offer. Whether i will get new visa or not, if yes then I will face any problem in saudi immigration while entering.

    Please let me know your comments.

    Good day.

    I checked my iqama and it says ‘ NO RECORD FOUND’ I am using the same iqama number and same company for 4 years. What could be the problem? Our HR said no worries. I just came back from vacation and I didn’t have any problem in the immigration. Any idea?

    Sir i would like to ask if im under horoob or not. i already left saudi arabia last May 2012 with final exit visa. i apply in my first company and stay there for almost 3 years. Then i decide to transfer to other company and file to my first company a transfer. and it goes smoothly. in my second company they send me to khamis mushayt without the possession of my iqama becouse they told me they need my original iqama for transfer of sponsorship. they gave me a copy and send me to khamis without giving me my contract. or to make me sign any contract then i came back to riyadh to tell them that i will not continue and find another employer they tell me to find another wand and ask for demand later when left they file horoob for me. But i still return there and fix. we went to MOL and i sign a document and i ask MOL if i can come back to saudi arabia and the MOL told me that i can come back. we go to jawasat together with my employee for final exit. i want to know if i cannot come back to saudi. my iqama no is 2287958678. thanks

    Hi Team,

    Before i ask a question here, here is my scenario. I went to KSA on a employment visa[Typically known as azaad visa here in India by shelling approximately 12000SAR excluding other fees and ancillary getting done in KSA ] on January, 2013. However i was unsuccessful in finding desired job for next 6 months. Moreover the sponsor was frequently pestering me to either take an transfer or go on Exit[Even though his company was in GREEN]. Since my job hunt did not bear any fruit i opted for an EXIT. Approached my sponsor who in turn got Exit/Reentry done and I left KSA in July, 2013.

    Now i have offers from couple of esteemed government companies. What should be my course of action now. Meanwhile i checked to see if my previous sponsor filed any compliant against me. Anyways i don’t owe him anything nor i have worked under him.

    Here are my questions
    1) Can anyone explain what does this message means- There are no specifications of registered workers, Getting this message when i check in Ministry of Labor site and Public Query Available Funds Failed, the ID is invalid!
    on Ministry of Interior. In fact i have read on quite a few blogs that it means an individual is on Huroob. How long does this stays ?

    2) Both my Iqama and visa has expired now

    3) Can i still ask the prospective employers to process my visa. Will i have any issues if i land up there ?

    Thanks for your patience
