    Salam. Thanks your reply. An agent in Pakistan offer me a visa whose status is engineer but i am an accountant. what is your recommendation because u say in your post your iqama status and your profession will be the same.

    According to the law your profession must match your degree or diploma. if your agent arranged engineer visa, it is possible to change when you come to Saudi Arabia. but that is the lengthy process. you can't bring your family immediately.

    That's means the problem is same i buy labor visa or buy engineer visa(Professional visa) iqma profession must be change. Tell me one thing the process of change of profession status on iqma is different in profession or non profession visa. If it is the same than why me pay more amount for this engineering visa.

    You are right. for change process the fee is same either you are labour or any other profession. further today I read one article from the labour department, that they are going to test your skills of your profession when you are entering into Saudi Arabia, it means if you are coming on engineer visa you have to face engineers test. according to the labour department, it will be must from 2013. so be carefull when you are buying visa.

    Exit Visa !

    posted by  Shahul Hameed in Saudi Arabia forum 

    Dear Mr.Yakub,

    Due to some problem i plan to go on exit visa to india.

    When i informed to my sponsor to make the exit he receive the iqama from me & after ten days he give me the passport + final exit visa paper + work permit card is attached with passport

    In the airport counter do they ask (or) require this work permit card & how they will process the final exit procedure by having the work permit card with me?

    Do the sponsor should come with me to airport ?

    Kindly give reply on above query

    May be by mistake your work permit card attached with your passport. Generally in most of the companies the work permit card will be attached with the passport and when you are leaving saudi arabia they will take the work permit card and iqama. remove the card from the passport, in airport they will not ask you the card. just they see only your exit papers and some one will come with you to the airport from your office. it is normal procedure.

    I can't understand one thing, when i have professional visa whose iqma status is Engineer why we need to change profession for family status.
    and one more question please, by law it is illegal to work in KSA other than your kafil which issue visa to you but the the agent who provide me visa says kafil give you no objection certificate(NOC). After this NOC it is legel to work in where in KSA.

    Looking for your positive and favorable response

    you are right Mr. Amir, hundreds and thousands of people working like what you said. but now the rules become strict. whenever the zawajat authorities checked your status, you are in danger. as per new rules the new comers from March 2013 must pass the tests (as per your visa profession). I posted the new rules on discussion. please check. if you are alone its ok, but with family it is very difficult in critical times.

    One time you say accountant profession is only for saudi citizen. Can you hear somewhere an accountant azad visa is available. I think as you say its only for saudi citizen i am not found this visa to anywhere. Kindly guide me what to do in this situation?
    and
    In your post u say if you r with family in this situation when your iqma profession dost not match with your degree what type of danger in this situation?

    Mr. Amir

    Yes accountant profession is for saudi citizens only. but in accounts general accountant, professional accountant, CFO etc,. is available for expatriates according to their degrees, and about your second doubt. if the iqama profession is not matching authorities will deport you.

    Sir,
    1) some one said me that the change of sponsorship is not allowed before two years is it right?
    2) you say in your post by law it is illegal to work in KSA other than your kafil which issue visa to you but the the agent who provide me visa says kafil give you no objection certificate(NOC). After this NOC it is legel to work in where in KSA?

    did you get the offer as a Project Engineer on which qualification basis (in computers or mechanical side), and another thing, is your agent asked you to register for exam?, if not no need to worry when you come to Saudi Arabia here they will ask you to give the exam. (I heard there is no examinations until March 2013).

    Dear Mr. Aamir

    Accounts is field related to Saudis only and as far as I know they don't issue visa of accountant to any non-local. Laws are changing here to involve Saudis in jobs & don't buy engineer visa because when you will apply for family visa you will have to provide the degree of engineering attested from HEC, Foreign office Pakistan & Saudi embassy in Pakistan to Maktab Istikdam here, a very simple way is to get some technical trade visa like Building Technician etc and you will have the family visa on that trade, as Mr Yakub Khan said test of concern fields will be conducted in future in 2013, this test & interview criteria is being applied right now on people already working here when they are being transfered to some other project, they go on vacations and returns from vacations, so don't worry try to come here with in 2012 & also decide all the conditions in Pakistan regarding visa, salary, accomodation allownce, tranport allowance, family allowance, family status visa & their tickets because if once these things are decided you can not change the agreements so easily later on so decide it once for ever.

    Salam,
    First of all thank you for giving your valuable time to me. Dear as you say if i come on engineering visa, at the time of apply family visa i need attested degree of engineering, its ok its new info for me.
    But as you said u purchased technical trade visa, on this visa verification of degree/certificate not required at time of applying visa?
    and my qualification and iqma profession do not match either it create some problem for me or not?

    Thanks

    Dear Amir

    You have to attest the certificates as well when you apply for family visa but certificates are not required to be attested from HEC. Certificates are attested at IBCC or some other department you can get all these information from Foreign Office or any agent who do the business of attesting documents from FO & Saudi embassy. Getting any type of degree in Pakistan is very easy as our CM Baluchistan said " Degree tou degree hoti hai chahay asli ho ya nakli". Apart from this joke if you have certificates of any technical skill from a registered institute your certificates will be countersigned by the Foreign Office & Saudi embassy.
