Ban on Profession change in Saudi Arabia

Dear Friendz,

Any one can advise me whats going on about profession change in Saudi Arabia. Is it banned temporally or permanent?Anyone has exact news from any authorized authority like Ministry of Labor or MOI?Are they declared it earlier or a sudden action from govt? What we can do if the news is correct?How it will effect me as I am Working as a normal laborer(iqama) and wants to change my profession to marketing specialist? Expecting an immediate reply


..Regards..shakir

Personally, I couldn't find a reliable source to say whether they stopped profession change service is temporary or permanent. Hypothetically speaking, It has to be temporarily (fingers crossed).

Have a look at this article

Nobody knows what is going on, i called MOL they said it has been stopped and you have to wait for the next announcement from the Govt.

Today I have submitted my all documents to HR dept.But they didn't accept it.Even they dont know whats happening there.Now its banned unconditionally.So If any one get news update plz share here.

Dear Shakir,

This is temporary .It will open once government achieve it's target  to minimize illegal immigrants with Home professions i.e. (Home driver,Home worker)

My profession is labour. I want to change my profession to restaurant supervisor or waiter. I am oresently working in a restaurant and want to change my prifession for family visit visa.
Please rply me im waiting for your helo

still no news about when they are going to start it again

Dears..

Since you are the only one who heard this news so how about you update us

Well, i checked my company and they receive a message from ministry last week of Feb 18 that its going to be reopen but when they visited the office it was told that yes we send the message last week but still its not yet open......thats why i am asking from all of you about any news

Anyone from damman, check this person he claims to change profession
****
He says his name is Mohammed A***, and he stays near Dareen Mall. It would be great if someone can meet him personally and find out if he is genuine or not.

hi friends,

go to saudi national portal website and check their is some profession changing procedure they announced ,but its fully in arabic ,,any one know very well arabic please check and post here in english..

Any update regarding ban on profession change?

Dear Members,
Don't pay a Single Riyal in advance because there are many saudis and expat saying that they can change but we have to pay 800 or 1000 in advance but these guys fraud. I asked one guy I will pay you more then your are asking but not a single riyal in advance. All payment will be after work but he did not agree

Dear All:
               Can we have some real authentic update from somebody or someone who has contacts or knows somebody in the MOL or working in an hr company who might have some inside information.
Kindly update us all what exactly going on regarding profession change ban. Will it be ever lifted or what is latest developments regarding this ban lifting process and letting peple change their profession.
Your valueable contribution will be surely apperciated by everybody.

Which labor profession do you have check with MOL whether it is allowing you or not for visit visa. If yes, then go for visit visa for the family. If you don't have family visa ask your company about this.

My profession is aamil aadi.

Fahad if you get some news or some how able to get visa do post here so others can also benfit from it. I am also stuck with sam problem with no solution that i could find.
