We may want to change our mobile number in Saudi Arabia due to any reason but we cannot do it since it is used by our banks to communicate us about transactions and used by Ministry of Interior to login to our account. Moreover, all the communication from Ministry of Interior is sent by SMS to this mobile number. Perhaps this is the main hindrance in changing the mobile number for an expatriate living in Saudi Arabia. Ministry of Interior communicates us about fines, iqama renewal, exit re-entry visa, final exit visa, the expiry of Istimara and many other things.
