Final Exit through another sponsor

In case your Iqama has expired more than 30 days ago, you can follow this procedure to get a final exit visa.

Final Exit without Iqama

After coming to Saudi Arabia, you can work for 3 months on a work visa. There is no need to get an Iqama during that time.

According to a tweet made by Jawazat, now the employer is allowed to issue a final exit visa without an Iqama through the Absher platform within 90 days of arrival to Saudi Arabia. 

Final Exit without Kafeel

The route to get a final exit visa without Kafeel is possible but quite difficult. In order to get a final exit visa without Kafeel, you will have to file a case in Saudi Labor Court.

If still there is any query or problem, you can now call the HR Ministry at 19911. They will assist you in Arabic, English, Urdu, and some other languages.
