Updating Iqama Information with BANK

I can see that the new Iqama card is valid for 5 years but most of the cases the MOI system has renewed only for 1 year.

I want to know when you go to the bank do they update their system for 5 or 1 year?

Yesterday I got my information updated in Alinma Bank. They updated for 1 year.

Every year you to visit bank to update your iqama with the same card for 5 years

All banks update it for ONE year.
The Muqeem plastic card (only) is valid for 5 years.

Your card unlike the old one will remain in your possession for 5 years and not replaced annually unlike the old card. Your Iqama is still only valid for 12 months. It's just updated electronically on the system with the 5th anniversary your card is replaced

Hi, you go to the bank every year you renew your Iqama, otherwise, your account will be frozen. the I.D. card does not mean anything except that this piece of card is valid for 5 years. Bank now are connected with the ministry, they will just enter your Iqama no. to  re-validate your account.

Dear All,

Please tell me if anyone updated their renewed iqama through ABSHER site, without visiting the branch.

Since I got a message from ANB asking to update the IQAMA through ABSHER..

Please let know the steps to do the same in ABSHER site

Many thanks..

I have heard that some banks have integrated their systems so that you don't have to visit their branches anymore just for Iqama validation. SAMBA is one of them.

Better call the Bank Phone Support. They will exactly inform you about the procedure.

If it's happening for true, then that's a good change from Stone Age !!

True that. Last time I asked to update my Rajhi bank account in April 2017, the customer service guy gave me a number to call which I did. Automatic voice system asked me to punch my date of birth and my iqama information was updated to my bank account profile right away.

Fransi you still need to go and update  :mad:
