Query about Iqama and Transfer

Salaam,

I have have been in KSA for more than 3 months, my HR company is failed to provide me Iqama till yet and it has been in Red status. As I don't have iqama so a lot of problems like late salary and can't get driving licence.

Before red status, my employer told me that as they called me on Civil Enginner Visa and I have computer science degree so there is issue in degree attestation and visa type in iqama processing in Jawazat.

2 Weeks ago I started looking for job as I heard that I can transfer to other company as I don't have iqama yet and my company is in red status. I got an offer from another company but I have some questions.

1. If I get transfer will my visa type would be same the Civil Engineer and my new employer would face same problem?

2. My passport is with my old employer what is the best way to get it back?

3. Any tip how can I deal with this kind of situations.

Thank you.
