How to get 1st Iqama for your Family- Latest procedure 2017

Recommend

Hi Guys,

Today i got Iqama for my wife. I am sharing my experience, it may help you if you are going to apply for first Iqama for your family.

Documents Requirements:

1-IQama Form. Can get online and filled it with help of Arabic friend. Attached 02 pics of your wife and get it stamped one of them from your company. There is also other place on form where you need company stamp in front of your Details. (as a sponsor).  Put your details as a sponsor not company as your will be Kafeel of your family. Pics in white back ground.

2- Family Passport Copy. ( Take original passport also)

3-Family Visa page copy

4-Your Iqama copy. (Take Original also)

5-Medical Clearance copy (Take original also)

Location for Riyadh:

I was told to go in Jawazat office on King Fahad Road. But they are not issuing Iqamas, they refereed me to go in Azizia Branch. This branch is located in side of Saptaco Bus Station. You need to go there and show your documents, with in 05 minutes they will issue IQAMA. Check details on iqama, it anything wrong you can ask them to print again with correction

Fees:

No Fees

Alhamdulillah.I got Iqama for my family today in Riyadh. If your family has newly arrived you have to visit the Jawazat office in Aziziyah,SAPTCO bus station to get the Iqama. There is no fees required to get the new Iqama for family(many people are confused with this). Documents Required are: 1.Iqama application form(your company will fill it and stamp it at the required place) 2.Passport copy(family and sponsor) 3.Iqama copy of sponsor 4.Original Medical report 5.Visa page copy from passport.
