Iqama Transfer check also known as Naqal kafala can be performed through the “Qiwa” Official website. Iqama transfer can be done through the HRSD Ministry/ Labor Office or Jawazat/MOI (Ministry of Interior)
Transfers of IQAMA can be done from one employee to another. When you move from one kafeel or company to another kafeel then you need to change your sponsorship to that kafeel. You may always check the Iqama transfer status or the Naqal kafala status online after starting the transfer using Qiwa.
You cannot check the Sponsorship transfer status in the English version as Ministry hasn’t provided it yet. Although pages can be translated using the Google translation tool or extensions, if those extensions are not working or maybe not accurately translating the page, then we have provided you with the guide to performing Iqama transfer check promptly.
Online Iqama Transfer Status Checks Procedure:
- Select The Naqal Khafa option from the menu
- Select the second radio button and enter the Iqama number
- Enter the verification code shown on your computer screen
If you see a message saying
” لم يتم تقديم اي طلب نقل خدمة للعامل، علما بأن صاحب العمل الحالي هي مؤسسة/شركة”
It means that there is no transfer request in the Ministry of Labor
And If a message says
It means that the employer has made a request which is not yet approved by the current employer.
Iqama transfer request validity lasts for 90 days. Also, check first Iqama medical.
Approved By MOL/Pending With MOI
While checking the iqama transfer status, If the request has been approved by the HRSD but is still pending with the Ministry of Interior. Then it simply means that you haven’t paid the fee for the transfer of sponsorship or your new employer will have to visit Jawazat to complete the process.
Iqama Transfer Request Validity:
If this message appears:
حالة الطلب في وزارة الداخلية: تم نقل خدمة العامل الى صاحب عمل جديد بتاريخ 1441/03/08، وفي حال عدم استلام رخصة الاقامة بعد, على صاحب العمل الجديد استلامها من الجوازات
It means that your request for Iqama sponsorship has been accepted and verified. You can check your new kafeel there.
To complete the process in Jawazat Pay the fee to transfer Iqama sponsorship within 12 days of acceptance of the request. Read about Iqama professions eligibility for families in KSA.
First Iqama Transfer Charges:
According to Saudi Labor Law, your sponsor will cover the costs of your first iqama transfer, and if it is your third, you will be responsible for paying half of the costs. Whereas, if this is your first time transferring your iqama, the fee is 2000 SAR. Additionally, the cost for the second transfer would be 4000 SAR, and the third transfer would cost 6000 SAR.
