Sponsorship transfer rules tightened

Saudi Arabia: According to the new Labor Law introduced for the expatriates in KSA, the private sector will have certain rulings and standard procedures when it will come to the transfer for sponsorship. It is said that new sponsorship transfers will immediately not be entertained. A private firm can apply once in every three months, during this time period, no new request will be entertained.

It is further said that the employees will have to have valid work permits and Iqama’s (Saudi ID cards for expatriates) for the sponsorship transfer that will be entertained within 3 months.

The Ministry will not be taking requests for Sponsorship transfers if it leads the company to degrading Nitaqat Category.

  • does not seem accurate. request will drop from the system if not completed after 3 months and it cannot be done for the same person. I advise you find a trusted source regarding this.

    • Samrah Shaikh

      The request will drop from the system after 3 months, then you may apply for another request. During the 3 months no new request will be entertained/accepted.
