It is very important to mention here that the above-mentioned link takes you to the ministry of labor website and therefore, you will be able to get the names of only those expatriates through their iqama number who are registered under them.

For example, you cannot check the name and other details of dependents and domestic workers by entering their iqama numbers as they are not registered with the Ministry of Labor for iqama issuance. They are directly registered with the Jawazat.
