If your current profession on Iqama is different from your actual profession, you need to change your profession by paying the required fee. In this article, we shall explain the procedure to pay the fee to change the iqama profession in Saudi Arabia.
The fee to change the Iqama profession as of 2019 is SR 1,000. In this guide, we are taking the example of Al Rajhi Bank but the procedure in other banks is also the same. Keep in mind that your application to change the iqama profession will be rejected if the fee is not paid.
In the first step to paying the fee to change the Iqama profession is to log in to your internet banking account and click on the payments. In Rajhi Bank, payments tab is available on the top banner as shown in the picture below. In the drop-down list of payments, select “SADAD”. Now you will be given some more options from where you need to select “MOI Payments”.
In the next step, a new window will be opened where you need to select “Expatriate Services” to pay the fee to change the Iqama profession.
In the new window, you will have to select “Payment” as transaction type and “Change of Occupation” in Application Type. After that, you will have to enter the iqama number in the “Iqama ID” tab.
It will be Iqama number of the person whose iqama is to be changed. After this, you will have to select the account number from which you want to make payment. This is the case when you have more than one account in one bank.
A new screen will appear where all the details of account number from which the payment is made, iqama number and other details will be mentioned. You need to make sure that all these details are correct. If any of the detail is incorrect, you should cancel the process to pay the fee to change the iqama profession and start from step 1.
If everything is fine, just click on the “Confirm” button and you are done with the process. You will receive a message on your mobile with the details of the transaction.
You can check immediately from the Ministry of Interior website if the payment has been deposited in your MOI Account. The procedure is very simple and it has been explained in this link. “Check Available Funds under Iqama through MOI”
