What is Sponsor ID?
Sponsor ID is a number given to every business by the Ministry of Labor for the identification of GCC sponsor in KSA and you can check it through Absher. It is normally a 10 digits code just like your Iqama number. As your Iqama Number is used for your identification, it is used for the identification of your GCC employer.
We might need Sponsor ID for several reasons in KSA. I have noticed that while applying for some visas especially during E-Visa of UAE for GCC Resident. You also need this ID while applying to Renew Saudi Driving License in Saudi Arabia.
How to Check it?
You need to have an Absher or MOI account to check Sponsor ID in KSA. If you don’t have an Absher account, you will have to register for it. The procedure to get you registered as explained in this link “How to register for Absher?”
Once the account is created, you need to login to your Absher or MOI account by entering your userID or Iqama number, password and the captcha code. An SMS will be sent to your mobile number with an authentication code which you need to enter the next screen. https://absher.sa
Once you have successfully logged in to the MOI account, you need to click on your name and picture to check Sponsor ID. A drop-down list will appear from where you need to click on “Dashboard”.
A new screen will open containing many important details related to your account. Now just look at the left side of your screen where your full name is stated along with your picture, you will find your birth date and marital status there. You need to click on the “More Details” link given under this to check sponsor ID.
A new screen will be opened containing details of your iqama number, name, birth date, birth country, marital status, nationality, religion and some other details. You need to check Sponsor ID on this page.
It is important to mention here that you can check your sponsor ID using the above-mentioned method but your Iqama number is the sponsor ID of your dependents. If you need it at any point of time for your dependents, you can enter your Iqama number there.
