    Sir,

    I am MOHD RASHID i have 06 month experience as a ”Document Controller” in Saudi Aramco project awarded to RAJEH H. MARRI & SONS COMPANY, KSA in contracting department. which is an oil & gas pipeline construction company
    (Website : rhmsons.com.sa).

    Right now I am facing lot of problems is that my company still not provided me IQAMA & Also Salary since last 6 months as of the date of joining, that’s why i am trying to find better opportunity.

    Furthermore, my company pay my work permit amount 1000 saudi riyal something but they do not pay my iqama fees. so according to saudi labour low i can very easily transfer to another company without my sponsor permission.

    Kindly do the needful for me.

    Thanks & regard
