Today we will guide you about the procedure to pay Transfer of Sponsorship fee using internet banking in Saudi Arabia. We are using Al Rajhi Internet Banking here. However, the procedure for other banks is also the same.

After this, you will have to select “Payment” in Transaction Type and “Transfer of Sponsorship” in the Application Type. You will be required to enter the Iqama number at step 3 and then click on the “Proceed” button as shown in the below screenshot.
A new screen will be opened where details about the iqama holder are mentioned. Make sure that all the details entered are correct. The system will fetch the amount of fee to be paid automatically based upon the number of transfers already made. For example, it is second transfer of the iqama holder and system is asking me to pay SR 4,000 for him. If details are correct, just click on the “Confirm” button.
Once the amount is paid in the system, you can check on the MOI website that the amount is successfully paid. You can check this by following the instructions given in this link “Check Available Funds under Iqama”
