Sometimes it happens that Kafeel (Sponsor) sets Huroob (Abscondment) status under your Iqama. It effectively means that you ran away from your sponsor and he reports to Jawazat that now this employee is not his responsibility.
It happens when you don’t pay to your sponsor on time agreed on the amount in case of free visa (which is illegal), or you don’t go to your workplace without intimating your employer. Employer tries to contact you with all reasonable sources and if he is unable to contact you, he puts on Huroob status to your Iqama.[irp]
