No chance of cancellation.

same problem.....

if you have created an online account for SCE you can update your certificates. Else visit SCE and ask them to delete your account and you create a new one.

Hello All....Can anyone tell how much time it will take to get permanent membership in saudi council of engineer once we get temporary membership and also to update the profession name..

Thank You


May be a week or 10 days time, you will be informed through sms and also you can check the status on SEC website. Regarding the "change in profession" on Iqama is closed for Engg, it seems. So your Iqama will not get new profession.

my boss tell he ask Sce to delete my account and and now he create a new one for me  but unfortunately my all documents still in process in my school will take time in issuing and authenticating my documents i told my boss it will take one month to accomplish everything in my documents . i work as draftsman for 8 years  for my boss only ( one company only) my only problem if saudi council will accept one year course graduate in university  and i did not finish a  5 years course .i only have one year course diploma.please help me if still have chance to register even in technical not engineer registration . i dont need to change my ekama status to engineer because im not engineer.

No way unless they approve your case. Iqama will be renewed or issued for first time after their approval. Visit Their office personally and request for proceeding fast and ask the reason for delay.

I would appreciate some help here! I have a BENG electronics and communications undergraduate degree from UK. I have been working in Saudi for some time now and since the rules were flexible never got the registeration with SEC. I will be moving to a new job and I applied for registration ans they rejected the application saying my degree is for 3 years!!! Most of the engineering degrees in the UK are 3 years unless you do a foundation year.....has anyone else had such an issue... If yes please advice... I have visited SEC office in dammam over 6 times they kept me waiting and finally rejecting it saying it has to be 4 years!!!! Now i fail to understand the way degree is valid and attested by the embassy and the cultural office in London!.... Any suggestion or help would be really appreciated....

Dear sir

Dear sir I want to register in SCE and I don’t have 5 years of experience they will I’ll accept my application or they will reject and I listen that have a power to put exit also so please anyone help me in this issues pls

Hi.. how long does it take before you received the message to pay the second payment SAR750..Because I'm still waiting for this and its 4 days now still havent received any message.

Usally it takes Min. one day to max a week or two, you can visit there office in your city if its getting to much delayed and get it done.

my 1st step of registration &  payment of 500SAR completed on 12/09/2018. How many days need to wait for the second steps of 750SAR payment?

It will take long if the documents you had attached are not complete. It means that there are missing required documents. Like what happened to my tooks one month..and i went to saudi council office in damam to follow my application just took 15 minutes..they just scanned the missing docs and at that moment it was approved. The problem with my application is that, im not the one who created my account in SCE my company did, so they missed some attachment.
