How to Check How Many SIM Card registered On Iqama in Saudi Arabia

Check Unknown SIM registered on Iqama

Check Unknown SIM registered on Iqama


Muqeem card is extremely important to register a sim card in Saudi Arabia. Since Muqeem or Iqama is treated as proof of ID in this country, sim card registration is linked to your Muqeem card. It is a good safety measure to take care of your Muqeem card or any of its copies as it is prone to misuse if it falls in the wrong hands.
§  Do not leave any copies of your documents unattended. Make sure to always shred such unwanted documents
§  Do not trust and give away your details and documents to any strangers who pretend to be concerned about you
§  People who illegally enter the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will be on the lookout for Muqeem card details of others so that they can register sim cards on some other name
§  In some cases, owners of small scale mobile shops, steal the Muqeem card details and sell sim cards registered to stolen details for minimal amount of money
It is very easy to find out this fraud by tracking and checking with your sim card provider (companies like mobily, zain, Virgin, STC etc. Login to your online account of mobile service provider and you can see how many sim cards are registered in your name. If you do not recognize any of them, you can immediately raise an issue over it.

How to block and remove unknown sim cards

Once you find out that there are many other sim cards registered to your Muqeem card, you must immediately call the customer care service of your mobile network provider and immediately tell them to block those sim connections that don’t belong to you. The next step is to go to their office and bring along your Muqeem card. After checking your ID proof they will then remove those unknown sim connections from your Muqeem card.

Saudi Iqama / Muqeem Renewal Process Step By Step

Saudi Iqama / Muqeem Renewal Process Step By Step

Saudi Iqama / Muqeem Renewal

§  As digitization is taking on the whole world, all the manual processes in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are being replaced by online processes. As of today, sponsors or employers can now initiate or renew their employees’ Iqama or Muqeem card through the MOFA website. A Muqeem card is valid for 5 years. If you have not already received your Muqeem card then you will get it automatically as long as you have a valid Iqama and the entire process is automated.
§  Consequences of Iqama not renewed
§  If your sponsor fails to renew your Iqama then he will be fined where the fine amount is the same as the renewal amount.
§  For other violations the fine is double the amount. And if you have had three violations declared against you then will be deported to your native country.
§  After Iqama / Muqeem has expired all your Saudi Arabia bank accounts and remittance center accounts will be frozen until renewal. So before expiry it is mandatory to withdraw all money from your accounts, then renew Iqama and then submit your new Iqama in the bank to activate your accounts
§  Iqama must be renewed atleast 3 days before expiry and the fee for that is 650 SR.
§  Iqama / Muqeem renewal fee for your other family members (those who are here on family visit visa) is 500 SR per head (above 18 years).
§  If you have a company that have more than 50% expatriates, then you need to pay 2400 SR as fee for labour office and if the number of employees is less than 10 then 4 expatriates are exempt from this fee
§  After submitting renewal application, get a letter signed by your sponsor that you have applied for renewal. This letter together with your old Iqama will be your temporary Muqeem Card.

Natives of countries Vietnam, Thailand, Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria, Nepal, Kenya, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti need to take medical tests during renewal. You can track the status of your renewal application in The MOI website, once you have registered.


New Iqama Renewal Process in Saudi Arabia


A lot of rumors have been doing the rounds on internet that Iqama fees are going to be increased from 2400 SR to 6000SR from 1438 hijri. But there has been no such official announcement of hike in Iqama fees and these are just rumors and not the facts. The officially announced fact is that all types of entry visa will now procure an entry visa fee of 2000 SR since 1st Moharram 1438 (2nd Oct 2016).

Types of Saudi Visas
§  Hajj Visa
§  Umrah Visa
§  Work Visa
§  Family Visit Visa
In order to motivate, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will bear the expense of 2000 SR (Hajj or Umrah visa) for all first time Hajj visitors. Some people may also plan for Umrah on their family visit visa. It is still not clear if these fees apply for an individual or for family though this confusion will be cleared in the near future.
The real Saudi Iqama renewal fee
The Iqama or Muqeem card renewal must be done once every year and rumor mills are abuzz that it is going to be 100 SR every year for renewal procedure, which is 2%. The expatriates must also keep in mind that this is effective from July of this year and will continue up to year 2020.   
If your Iqama or Muqeem card is not renewed on time then you may incur a penalty fee of 500 SR per Iqama. Your Iqama expiry date can be checked on the MOI website on the Query Iqama Service. Also MOI official app is available which you can install on your smart phone and track your Iqama status. Your Muqeem card is extremely important as your ID card in your country and allows you to enjoy most of the facilities and privileges.


   

Job change or sponsorship transfer (Naqal Kafala) in Saudi Arabia

Job change or sponsorship transfer (Naqal Kafala)


Naqal Kafala or change of job means change of sponsorship in Saudi Arabia. So changing your job is a big deal as it means that your sponsor too changes. Saudi Arabia has always been supportive of hard working expatriates and is considered as the best place of employment. Changing your job or transfer of sponsorship (Tanazul) is a difficult process but can be achieved if the process is followed correctly. It can be done in two ways:
§  Go for final exit, out of the country and then come back in with a new visa
§  Employer must transfer your sponsorship to the other company and this is a lengthy process. Employers mostly don’t encourage Tanazul
Sponsorship details
If you are working in a company that is categorized as ‘red’ then change of sponsorship is very easy and you don’t really have to reveal the details of your first company. Previously there was a concept of ‘Azad Visa’ where you are not really tied to a single sponsor, so you are free to change job. But now this visa has become illegal in Saudi Arabia and is no longer entertained.    
Dos and Don’ts before Naqal Kafala
§  You must thoroughly read your company contract and confirm your doubts with your employer before signing. Keep in mind that your visa is tied to the company you work for.
§  Confirm with your new employer the terms and contract of your new employment
§  When exiting from your old company, complete all the exit formalities without burning your bridges with your old employer, so that there is no reason for him to turn you down
§  Don’t plan exit / re-entry strategy
§  It is better not to talk of your plans for job change either with your friends of colleagues

Family visiting visa eligible Iqama


Many Saudi expatriates have a lot of confusion regarding the valid Iqama for family visit visa. Sometimes, valid Iqama professions don’t get visa approval and in some cases expatriates with lower Iqama professions get visit visa approval.
In order to apply for a family visit visa go through the detailed process for family visit visa. Whenever one tries to apply for a family visit visa it is very important that the expatriate’s Iqama is included in the list of eligible professions. You can check your Iqama eligibility in the ‘profession list for family visit visa’.
#1    If you do not find your profession in the ‘profession list’ then you can fill up the family visit visa application and try submitting it. If it goes through, then you are eligible. If you are not able to submit your application, then your Iqama is not eligible.
#2    When you find that your Iqama profession is not eligible for you to bring your family, then you request your sponsor to change your Iqama profession into an eligible one.
#3    First select the profession you want to change to and approach your sponsor. Your sponsor will let you know about the profession that you want to change to and will advice you further what to do. Check how to change Iqama profession on the link provided. 

These Iqama professions are also known as the benefited professions since all the eligible professions benefit the employee in the sense that they can bring their families over. Sometimes even lower Iqama professions (like driver, maid, laborer, domestic visa etc.) can also apply and try. Sometimes they do get approved. However your sponsor applying for your family visit visa or you applying the same with somebody else’s Iqama profession are illegal and can be found out during regular jawazat raids.

The Thing You Should Know about Saudi Muqeem Resident Identity Card



The Thing You Should Know about Saudi Muqeem Resident Identity Card

Muqeem Resident Identity Card


The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has started issuing the Muqeem Card or the Resident identity card from 14th Oct 2015 (1437 Hijri – the start of the Islamic year), to replace the Iqama number. So from this date, no more Iqamas will be issued. In Riyadh, Muqeem cards have already been given out and the process initiated by the crown prince Mohammed Bin Naif, the Deputy Premier and the Ministry Of Interior (MOI). ‘Iqama is not going to be used for any employee henceforth. The passport department of the country has issued notice stating that the new Muqeem cards will be sent out using Saudi post to all individuals and companies with the entire process being conducted online. There was no need for any expatriate or citizen to visit the offices in connection with Muqeem Card.
Important details of Muqeem cards
§  Personal details like Photo, Name, Date of Birth, Occupation, Nationality, Work eligibility, Religion, Employer name and Work Permit Number will be mentioned on the card
§  Although the validity of Muqeem card is 5 years, there is no expiry date on the Muqeem card. However, you need to renew Muqeem Card once every year through Muqeem online service or abshir service. Which is the same as was done for Iqama, just that the name Iqama is not used
§  If the expatriate leaves the country on a re-entry visa and fails to come back, then a 3 year ban will be imposed. However he/she will be able to enter after the ban period

§  Since the Muqeem cards are equivalent to ID cards, they can used for various purposes like toll gates, check points, banks, companies and hotels. The Muqeem card acts as a one stop solution for all points where your identity needs to be verified.
