In June 2011, Saudi Ministry of Labor introduced Nitaqat Law for Saudization. The purpose of the law is to provide employment opportunities to Saudi nationals ahead of foreign expatriates. Now it has become very important to check if mosasa, Kafeel, institute or company is in red or green category of Nitaqat. In other words, you can easily check Iqama color or Iqama Status using the information provided below.
Iqama status red or green
This program classified the Saudi mosasa, Kafeel, institutes or companies of the private sector into four categories i.e. Platinum, Green, Yellow, and Red. A mosasa, Kafeel, institute or company which is in Platinum or Green means that it has high Saudization rate.
Conversely, a mosasa, Kafeel, institute or company which is in Yellow or Red means it has a low Saudization rate. The benefits available to the companies in each category are different according to compliance with Nitaqat.
If you want to know about the Nitaqat Law in detail, please read this article. Here in this article, we shall describe step by step, how to check Nitaqat Category of Kafeel by Iqama number.
