I am staying and working under the current sponsor since June'16. I haven't transferred my sponsorship to the company where I'm working.

Any help would be much appreciated

Two of there essential legal documents have expired --- have not been renewed

1- Commercial Registration
2- Municipality license

Until and unless these two documents are renewed, you can't change your sponsorship to them.

Thanks for the response.

I'm afraid, will there be any problem for me ?

Yes, unless its renewed you cant change the sponsorship and if you are caught working at the new employer without transfer of sponsorship you will face some issues along with your sponsor.

Hi hr GURu, can iqama renew if commercial registration is expire?

Can I renew my iqama or can I transfer sponsorship if my current kafil status is by "Commercial Registration expired - municipal license expired".

Until the cr is renewed, this cannot be done.

The answer you gave is applicable in Saudi Arabia or UAE?
Can you provide any reference (link) from any related Ministry, where it is mentioned?

Is this applicable to UAE or KSA?
Can you provide any official link stating this?

1) You are on the Saudi forums so this is obviously about Saudi
2) The posters whom you are asking are not active on the forums nowadays so you may not get a response
3) In this part of the world, majority of the guidelines and procedures are not listed online.  You only learn about it through experience.  The only exceptions that I have come across are Bahrain and UAE where commercial registration guidelines are clearly listed
4) When it comes to violating guidelines, the impacts are given in Laws (in Arabic) but every case is different
5) Coming to the point, in pretty much most GCC countries, if your CR has expired, this in essence means that you pretty much can't do any transaction e.g. issuance of new visas or transfers or whatever.  If you don't renew it for a certain period of time and it remains in that phase, it can get deleted or blocked and all visas linked to it, cancelled.  Municipality is about your physical office location and your right to operate out of it - if that is suspended, it has a flow on impact on the CR as a violation and then on visas

Having said that, if you want to try and research, you can have a look here to see the laws of the commercial register.

Then go to the Ministry of Labor / MOFA and read laws on work permits / visas.  Put all the relevant laws from these ministries together and you will arrive at what the posters were saying earlier.  Or take their word for it because you are definitely not going to find an official site which will summarize it clearly for you :)
