Working in a Different Position Against Iqama in Saudi Arabia
Some expatriates, who are living in Saudi Arabia, are working in a different position against iqama in saudi. Is this OK?
I have a friend who has that condition. They’re just fine, actually. The problem is when in your iqama profession is labor level. This will limit you from the eligibility to invite family to Saudi Arabia and many other things.
It’s possible to change iqama profession in Saudi Arabia. Some people do this because they want to stay working in Saudi Arabia. In this country, some profession is limited to Saudi Nationals, so, in some cases, the expats should change the iqama profession.
If your iqama profession is disturbing you, making you so many problems, I suggest you to change it into whatever as long as it is possible. Usually, the Jawazat officer will not ask you about this.
This iqama profession is only useful in government related business. So, please manage this well. If you have any questions, please write a comment or two.
