Final exit visa but iqama just expired

Well if you are caught by them don't worry about food and housing,  but all that aside you do not have much option left in front of you since you are already classified as illegal.

Thanks once again,
Just for enquiry,
Instead of Labour office can I directly approach deportation centre?

@HHguru ji
Dear all,
Thanks for your precious advice,
Today 14/02/2017 I have registered my complaint in Labour office, Riyadh. I reached Labour office located in quraish at 10.30AM with forms filled with data in Arabic and attached my passport copy and Iqama.
I got my turn Around 12.45P.M. after duhar salah, I handed over the documents to Labour officer. In couple of minutes he accepted my complaint and given two printouts and suggested me to post one copy to my sponsor and one copy for my reference (this copy is equivalent to residential proof till case is under Labour office).
My first hearing will be held on 08/07/1438 that is on 5th April 2017. I request all wellwisher to pray for me. InshaAllah I will keep on updating in this post all steps I followed and will be in seek of your help whenever I need.
Thank you

Good for you , and hope all goes well with you man .

Dear HR guru,
I have one small doubt,
Can I drive car by considering  Labour office paper as my residential proof?
Note: I have valid Saudi Arabia driving licence.

walaikum salam , once the exit is stamped, then there is a period of 60 days within which the exit has to be done. So if the employer is giving the exit , lets say before expiry of iqama by 4 april, then the exit needs to be done before 3 June 2017.

Hi All,
My company where i worked was closed when i was on vacation. When i return to KSA i have only one week for the expiry of iqama, since my company was closed my iqama could not be renewed. Iqama expired on 16 Jan 2017, now i asked my kafeel for exit, it is not possible unless or otherwise my i transfer to new company and my iqama is renewed. I couldn't find a suitable job, i want to go on exit, so what is the process

Your employer since he is closed officially they can give you exit from passport office directly, you just have to approach them with a company representative. If not approach any labor office near to your location and they will process this for you.

Your kafeel is stating it from his head. According to point # 5 in the Jawazat page (link shared below) you can take final exit on expired residency permit by paying fees of SR. 600 for each expired year in Sadad system.

Show this to him and ask him to complete the formalities.

Hi HR Guru,

Thanks for your reply. Ministry of Labour had told that there is no records and they condemn the sponsor for closing the company without transfer or give exit to employees and told him to pay heavy fine. Hence the sponsor is approaching the Jawazaat, please let me know the details. I am in urgent to leave in few days because of certain emergency. Is it possible?

As ehtesham detailed above you can approach the Jawazat and they can assist you with the exit process or at least point you to the right people.

Dear all,
As salaam Alikum
As I promised I am updating my case,
My first hearing was scheduled today As I mentioned in previous post that my case was scheduled on 5/4/2017 @ 8.30AM, unfortunately my sponsor failed to appear so the officer has again scheduled my case on 15/4/2017.
I am worried if again my sponsor doesn't come.
My question is to all experts here as you know my wish is to go on final exit, however we all aware that there is an excuse allotted by the KSA government for the illegal expatriates, can I chose this excuse option as an opportunity instead of Labour court?.

Please reply as soon as possible, I am eagerly waiting for your reply, because I am not getting proper instructions from Labour court and embassy.

Sir,

My end of contract is Aug 8th and iqama going to expire 8th of July, my employer saying that he will renew the iqama and need to stay for 3 months upon renew iqama?
is that a ksa rule?

Dear Gentelmen ,

I've resigned my job in the last month thats 30,May,2017. My company aacepted my resignation, i got a new job and submitrd a demand letter & online request, but my company is unable to accept that request and say there is a problem in MoL and will resolver today by duhar Salah.
*my iqama gets expire on 31/05/2017, can i still get trasfer after the expired iqama when MOL website is ready to use (coz req was sent before iqama expire). Or do my ex employee have to renew my iqama to transfer me to new company.
*On the other hand can the company give me final exit on expired iqama.
*Is there any chances to get transfered to the new company without any context from the (Green niqat) exsponser (as my iqama will be expired) whats the ruling on this if ever its possible .

Hi,
what if final exit is stamp after 20 days of Iqama expiry? What are the fines? Is this a serious violation like deportation or just simply we have to pay fine based upon overstay?
Since company is giving assurity that Iqama will be renewed may be after three weeks of expiry but if it is not renewed what will be the penalty for final exit stamp after Iqama expiry.
Awaiting your kind reply.
Thanks

Hi,
They cannot apply final exit on expired iqama, in order to apply exit  your company need to renew your iqama first.

Alharith86 :

by law you have 60 days to leave the country from the date that your final exit visa was issued. Your situation is good don't worry.

Hello.

Can you suggeat me a proper way to deal with this issue.

My iqama expired on 2nd June. And since then my company has not renewed it. When i finally decided. Thag i want to go home on final exit. The company is unable to do my final exit.

They took 4000 riyals from me. And i have been waiting for more than 2 months for my final exit. Still not done.

Is there a way of getting final exit. When the company is not supporting us. I have no money. No benefits. Nothing here.

I dont care about it anyways. Just help me to get out of this country. Please !

@samad : Proper way is that your company only should make a final exit for you as per the legal procedures. As your company is delaying the process,  you can approuch Indian consulate on Twitter and send them message on twitter, they will guide and help you by co-ordinating with your company, to finishoff your issue as soon as possible.

my son iqama is going to expire on 5 th of feb 2018. i would like to make exit before expiry i.e 1st of feb2018. but can he travel on 27 march 2018.
please let me know

Its a month My iqama is expired i m a housewife my husband was willing to renew but its difficult for him now i m willing to have final exit can any one tell the whole process and how much expensive are now being required

Iqama renewal Fees  + Penalty of Iqama Exipry  + Medical Isuurance Fess + Dependent Fees till your Next Renewal + Exit Visa Fees.
