Computer Technician Reg. at SCE Degree Attestation required or not

Dear All,

I have got a job offer. Due to some mismatch in names on my degree and passport the attestation is failed.

However, I am asked to come on Labor visa and then profession will be changed to Computer Technician.

I have two questions,

1) To register as Computer Technical at SCE do we need to provide the attested degree or without attested degree it will be processed?
2)  On Computer Technician profession can we sponsor family iqama / visa?

Looking for quick help.

Thanks,

1 - I suggest you to register in SCE with DIPLOMA for Computer Technician profession if your documents are readily available. And yes, your diploma must be authenticated and attested in your home country.

You can register without diploma but SCE will give you 3 months temporary membership only; and they will cancel it if you fail to upload the required diploma and supporting document certificates.

Here is how to register as Computer Technician (Diploma holder): Upload the following documents to the SCE profile that you have created:
- Attested diploma, both sides.
- Authorization Letter, download from SCE website, fill out properly, and scan.
- Introduction letter from the current employer, attested by the Chamber of Commerce.
- Copy of Iqama/Entry visa page in the passport.
- Copy of Passport.
- Personal Photograph (passport quality).
*Note: All documents are subject to verification from the issuing agency.

2- Yes, for Computer Technician profession with more than 5 years experience you can sponsor your family on a permanent visa (iqama).

did you manage to change your profession to a computer technician?

I have an accountant profession but I need to change it to a computer technician but my degrees still need to be attested from my home country. but can I change it temporarily until next tenure?

Well in my case, company is taking the responsibility for profession change (Computer Technican). However, my bacholer of computer science degree is not attested from Saudi culture and Embassy but HR is saying that attested degree is not required.

that means there is hope until I get my attestation finished.

Obviously, attestation of your DIPLOMA won't be needed because they mobilize you to KSA on Labor Visa. In this case, your company HR is correct.

But by the time you are going to register as non-engineering (Computer Technician} profession in Saudi Council of Engineers (SCE)…this is another story…SCE won’t accept you (Reject) once they’ve found your Diploma is NOT authenticated and attested in your home country in addition if your years of experience is less than five (5) years. In this scenario your HR will turn his back on you.
