The introduction of the online MOI account has made our lives a lot easier. I have heard people saying that it used to take them one full day to get exit re-entry for their dependents through Jawazat which can be done now in 5 minutes using MOI account. The Abshir account these days is an absolute necessity for expatriates living in Saudi Arabia. All of us know that a confirmation code is sent by the MOI to our registered mobile number to log in to MOI account. What if you lose this mobile number? How to update it in the system? We have explained the procedure in the link below.
The easiest way to perform this job is to locate an MOI KIOSK Machine around you. MOI KIOSK machines are available in almost every big shopping mall and Jawazat offices and Airports. All the below pictures and experience has been provided by Mr. Zahid Anwer who is a Chartered Accountant from Pakistan and working in Saudi Arabia.
First of all, select the English language. In the next screen, you will have to scan your fingerprints to allow KIOSK machine to identify your profile. You will have to scan your right and left finger. There is a possibility that the KIOSK machine might ask you to scan some other fingers as well.[irp]
In the next screen, you will have to enter your Iqama Number. Now the system will match the fingerprints scanned with the Iqama number entered. If these records match, you will be given access to enter to your online account.[irp]
Now you will be given 3 options to Activate MOI Account using KIOSK Machine, Update Mobile Number and Reset Password. People who want to activate their account using a KIOSK machine can select this option. Mr. Zahid selected “Update Mobile Number” icon on the screen.[irp]
In the next screen, you will be asked to enter the new mobile number which you want to register with the MOI account. Make sure that the new number is registered on your name to avoid any trouble in the future.[irp]
The system will send you a verification code to ensure that you possess this mobile number. Enter the verification code received from the MOI in the system and complete the confirmation process to successfully Update Mobile Number in MOI (Abshir) Account using KIOSK Machine.
