Expired Final Exit Visa

Dear friends,

I am posting on behalf of my friend who is seeking for your kind advice.

His previous sponsor gave him Final Exit visa and it was expired since 09/09/2016.
Since his previous company is in Red category and his iqama got expired,
a new sponsor was able to transfer him online, as per the Nitaqat policy.

The transfer request has been approved online by MOL.
And the Ministry of Interior also approved it online.
The last step is to claim the iqama from the Jawazat.

Now, the question is - Will Jawazat issue the iqama even he has this expired Final Exit Visa?
Kindly advice us what should be done, as the new sponsor seems to be confused...

Thank you and hoping that somebody will be able to help and shed light to this question.

Regards to all.
