Remove Huroob without Kafeel

Removing Huroob by Kafeel

A Kafeel can remove Huroob set for his employees only if the following 2 conditions are fulfilled;

  1. The abscondment cannot be canceled through Absher and Kafeel needs to visit Jawazat to remove it.
  2. If 15 days have elapsed after the Kafeel has set Huroob, it cannot be removed even if Kafeel visits Jawazat.

In order to do it, go to your Kafeel and convince him to remove the Huroob status. Generally, Kafeel demands some money for it.

It is important to know that if 15 days have elapsed after the Kafeel has set Huroob, it cannot be canceled even if Kafeel visits Jawazat. Therefore, no need to pay him anything.

Huroob Cancellation by the Court

After 15 days of setting the Huroob, the expat will have to file a labor case against the Kafeel and prove that the Huroob was set with a malafide intention.

If you are successful in proving that, your Huroob status will be removed by the court.

Final Exit during Huroob

Unfortunately, there is no way to get a final exit while the expat has a Huroob status. In order to leave Saudi Arabia, you need to;

  • Remove Huroob and get a final exit or;
  • Follow the deportation procedure (explained below).

You can report to the authorities at the detention center (Tarheel). They will detain you, keep you in detention and deport you to your home country. However, leaving the country under Huroob also means that you would be banned to enter back to Saudi Arabia on a new visa for 5 years.
