IQAMA TRANSFER & PROFESSION CHANGING

Dear Sir,
I came on work visa and I will be leaving kingdom before 90 days. I don't have iqama till 80 th day. I gave resignation  and the current Sponser promised me to send legally. Meanwhile I got a new Sponsor what he is requesting me to stay in the  kingdom for 90 days and the  process will be open for them to transfer without current Sponsor consent eventhogh he gave an exit. I want a clear cut clarity at the earliest

Dear HRGURU,

i dunno if this is the right topic i have to place my question but here goes.

i was here in Jeddah before as a dependent by my father but then I had to go to the Philippines on Exit for college because i thought i didnt want to go back to the kingdom after.
but now after studying i am currently here again in Jeddah and my father got me by Visit Visa only cause he said that he cannot get me as a dependent anymore because of the exit. i am now 24 yrs old turning 25 this August. (female by the way..).
Is there any way he can get me as a Dependent (Visa) again so that I can have an iqama and work and transfer my sponsorship to a company?

Hope to hearing from you soon. :)

Chances are slim , but there are ways to work. Your dad can apply for a dependent visa and provide supporting documents / letters that you are alone and no one to look after you and that you need to be here with family. This could work if supporting documents are given. A previous exit does not matter in any case.

I have heard that some reputable professions like engineers, doctors, and managers etc. can only invite their family to Saudi Arabia.
I guess the recruitment agent will mention (فني مختبر الكيمياء) i.e.  Laboratory technician chemistry as profession on my Iqama. So, will I be entitled to bring my wife in Saudi Arabia???
If yes, then can I sponsor visa to my wife in first month i.e. before the probation period of 03 months???
Please reply.

Legal way is to resign from your job by informing your manager / management and ask for a release. If they refuse to do so you can approach the labor office and ask their assistance to expedite your case.

Certifications are not usually endorsed by Saudi Consulates or taken into consideration when issuing professions. You might need to show educational certifications - like Bachelors / Masters in Project Management as a major filed of study. If still going ahead, then the issuing country's saudi embassy needs to attest the certificate and in this case Saudi Embassy in US.

Many thanks for useful information. God bless
