Check if you are blacklisted due to criminal activities in Saudi Arabia

Check if you are blacklisted due to exit re-entry visa in Saudi Arabia
Another common reason due to which people want to check if they are blacklisted in Saudi Arabia is that they didn’t return back to Saudi Arabia within the validity of the exit re-entry visa. Earlier, the rule of the country was that if an employer doesn’t report against you, there is no blacklisting or ban on an employee.
However, recently the Saudi government has changed the rule and now there is an automatic ban imposed on those employees who flee the country on an exit re-entry visa and don’t return back. We have written a detailed article on this topic which can be read here. Recommended: What is the ban period on failing to return on Exit Re-Entry Visa?

People also want to check if they are blacklisted in Saudi Arabia due to the fact that they had a little disagreement with their sponsor at the time he was issuing a final exit to them. Well, you don’t need to worry about it at all.
The ministry of interior doesn’t give this right to a sponsor or kafeel to decide the destiny of his employee. I have written a detailed article on this subject which everyone with his apprehension should read. Recommended: Can Kafeel ban or blacklist expatriate with Final Exit?
