Yes, registration with the Saudi Council of Engineers (SCE) is mandatory for the issuance of work permit (Iqama).

Obviously, Jawazat is red X because you do not have Iqama yet from MOI. To resolve the issue of Jawazat red X, log-on in your SCE account once you receive the Iqama ID card and click update Jawazat. Enter your iqama details and pay the SCE bill through SADAD ATM or online banking system.

Same issue how van i relove

Thanks for the reply. I have submitted my request on 7th Feb. but still it is showing "We are Auditing your request". how many days shall I wait before visiting the office directly?

If you have an engineering visa and you don't have 5 years experience you can't get the SCE registration and that's the way you need SCE paper for final exit.
Because, for a final exit the iqama issuance is must and if SCE involved you need a permission/letter from SCE to get the exit without iqama.
When did you complete your degree?
NO NO. SEC IS NOT NEEDED AT ALL FOR EXIT.

Your choice.
You can transfer to any company without approval from your sponsor.
But you want to go home.
Go to your embassy they will help you but remember you would be banned from coming back to KSA.

if there is any option please let me know me it is big help for me

how can i get iqama without final exit?

Hi all,


I came to Saudi on the 7th November, submitted documents for SCE and paid 500 already on the 8th November. Still waiting for them, just took so long to get it done...

@ssmmed92 Hello, when did you finish your undergraduation? I think if you have 5 years gap from your undergraduation degree, you can still go ahead with engineer category visa.

Hello,




I worked with business visa in KSA for 4 years for a foreign company. Now i transfered to Saudi company and want to get Iqama. I was home and I got visa as a mechanical engineer. Now to get iqama they told me that i need to get membership in SCE.  I have a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering.


My question is do I just need to submit required documents or do I need also to pass some kind of engineering exam? Because I am getting different information from different people, and no one in my company knows. I my job is more like a technician than engineer but I got visa as engineer.


Can someone please explain because there are a lot of different contradicting information online.


Thank you




Regards

@zgrgic

Hello,

Yes, you need to submit the required documents.

You need to attest your degree and marking sheets from your Education Department (Ministry or whatever highest authority in your country).

And from your Ministry of foreign affairs, Saudi Embassy in your home country and saudi culture.

Do that as quickly as possible (find some agent in your home country, it will make the process fast).

Then, submit everything to SCE with passport and company's letter explaining your job position.

And you will get the membership and after that if SCE asks, there will be a short exam on the next renewal of your iqama.

@Arsal7 Thank you for your answer. I already have everything attested. I will submit the documents today.

I am a Software Engg and my SCE registration was done on 22nd Dec, 2022 but till now i.e 6th Jan,2023 the Jawazat updated field is in Red (X). I am new here and I don't have an Iqama yet. If anyone of you can please answer how many days it usually takes to get that approved and if it is mandatory to register in SCE to get a new Iqama. Well, my company has uploaded all the docs and also paid 500 SAR.

Thanks in advance for any help!!

Dear Assalamu Alaikkum.

I have come to Saudi with Engineer Visa, my certificate attestation is under process in India, now can i get Iqama? or I have to get my attested certificate then register with SCE and then only i can get Iqama? can you please advise?

@RedTrumpet


I hold Bachelor of Computer science degree and I came to saudi as a construction worker, as I have experience in handling task related to Large Corporate IT Network. I got job in Technology company  as pre-sales, where i need to understand customer requirements and recommend routers, switches and firewalls accordingly… Later i registered with SCE as Computer Network Technician, got my final approval with my diplomas and certifications. Did no submit degree as it was not attested.


After i got my final approval from SCE , i request my Kafeel to change my profession from Construction worker to Anything. He deducted SAR.2000/- from my salary for the change and after somedays, the profession change to Network management Specialist on my iqama. But the Jawazat has always been RED X,

it never turned green ever.. its been almost a year now.


My task are non technical, just explaining the features of network devices to customer.


is that is the reason that my profession on my iqama “NETWORK MANAGEMENT SPECIALIST” some it show “Network Administrator” is a non technical profession? Doesn't required SCE Registration for this ?

@Rajuchoudhury for professional job and  as per your designation SCE registration do required. You can visit jawazat office and check what is the issue. Better take someone who knows Arabic if you can't don't know the language.

I have technician visa but my degree is engineering 4 year .can I get registered with sce ?

facing same issue. what became of your issue?

I have bs.C electronics degree(regular),which certificate I will get?Technician or engineer?I am working as a it technician can I get computer technician certificate on this certificate?

@engrali hi , I have came here on Engineers visa my jawazat is green ticked . I have valid iqama also. But lately SCE people have rejected my application for spelling mismatch. The membership is valid on the website But have not gt the certificate. Will this be a issue is transfer of iqama or validating it's expiry. Plz comment. If anyone else could reply it would be great. Thank you.
