Reduce Iqama Renewal fee from SR 1,150 to 650

Sometimes the Iqama Renewal fee comes as SR 1,150 rather than SR 650 while paying it online. It could be due to one of the two things;

  • The fine for Iqama renewal (explained above).
  • Wife's Iqama Fee.

Keep in mind that you don't have to pay the Wife's iqama fee separately as it is already included in the Iqama renewal fee of SR 650. What you can do is visit Jawazat along with your Iqama, Passport, and marriage certificate and they will fix this issue.
