New rules for iqama profession change

Thanks for your reply . That means , if i have 4 years engineering degree in any field that satisfy SEC requirement to register me there . As far as Iqama , if it is showing Network consultant with an experience and certification relevant to those , should be good enough ?, beside i have Mechanical engineering.

Good day to you! I just read your reply to the concern of the other person and in glad you gave him a full detalyed answer. I hope you could help me too. I am so bothered about the profession change from house driver visa to accountancy. I just want to ask if is there any way to change the profession of my husband for him to work as an accountant? We are here in riyadh. Looking forward to your reply. Thank you and have a nice day!

For SEC certification you can have your Mechanical degree used, but for the iqama for a profession of network consultant - preferable education back ground is either in IT or in telecom. You may face a mismatch with the title and education.

If he possess the required education certificate which is attested from Saudi Embassy from the country of study he can change his profession.

Is it possible company can use different title something generic to get Iqama approved ?. I am doing internal transfer in my company , just region going to change from Canada to KSA . Would there be any possibility if it is internal company transfer ?.
In advertised job description the requirement is  4 years engineering degree with 10 years of experience and Cisco certifications . I do full fill all the above requirement.
If some one has similar situation can share his experience , it will be great.

If you want engineer as a profession, get your certificates attested from Saudi Embassy in country of study and then apply for membership with Saudi Council of Engineers and then apply to change the profession.

HI,
I am a diploma holder in Civil Engineering, working as a Quality Control Engineer with a reputed company in Jubail.
My question is -

1) Can I register with the SEC as I have no degree, but diploma? All my documents are attested.

2) My iqama says "General Surveyor". Would I be able to bring my family on a permanent visa?

3) What is the procedure to change profession online? Especially, if I am unable to register with the SEC, is it possible to do it online through some other website

Please advise.
Thanks

Hi, Friend.
Can the profession be Changed on the visa the day I enter the Kingdom before processing my Iqama. OR I should make the Iqma then Change my profession.
My Civil Engineering Degree is attested by External Affairs Ministry Govt of India & by the Saudi Consulate (Mumbai) .

I have done BS then MS in software engineering. Saudi Culture has attested the MS degree. Will SCE accept the MS degree (2 Years) or I  need BS ?

SCE will consider your BS degree with 8 Semesters.
