How to update Iqama in Albilad bank online?

Bank Albilad offers its customers an option to update Iqama online using net banking without visiting their branch. In this article, we have explained two ways of updating your ID with Albilad bank and Enjaz. 

Update iqama online using Bank Albilad net banking

First of all, login to your net banking by entering your credentials and go to the profile section and select the option “Update ID Expiry Date”.

The system will show a message on your screen that “Dear Customer, Your ID Expiry date is within a few days.  If you have already renewed your ID then click on the “Update” option to update your ID.” The system will also show your date of birth on the screen.

When you click on the “Update” option a pop-up message will appear confirming that you have renewed your ID. You need to click on the “Continue” button to proceed.  If you proceed without renewing your Iqama, you will get an error message.

Finally, the Bank Albilad system will automatically fetch the Iqama expiry date from the MOI/Absher system and update it online.

If it is not easy for you to update your Iqama through net banking, you can always visit any branch of Albilad bank for it. 

  • In order to find the nearest branch, you can type “Bank Albilad” on Google maps or use the Branch Locator.
  • Take a token for the customer services and explain the purpose of your visit to the officer upon your turn.
  • The officer will take your Iqama, make a copy of it, print a form and ask you to sign it. Soon, your ID expiry date will be updated in the Bank Albilad system.
  • If your account was frozen, it should have been activated now. You can withdraw some money from Albilad ATM to check if it is reactivated.

Update iqama with Enjaz

Enjaz is one of the most famous channels to transfer money from Saudi Arabia to different countries. After renewing my Iqama, I was intending to visit Enjaz to update my iqama details but I received the following message. “Your ID expiry date has been updated automatically and there is no need to visit the branch”.

If you are a Bank Albilad customer too and you have updated your Iqama by either net banking or visiting the branch, you don't need to follow a separate procedure to update it with Enjaz as their systems are integrated.
