Iqama Renewal Process

Iqama can now be issued and renewed on a quarterly basis in Saudi Arabia. Previously, this could only be done once a year. Iqama renewal requires payment of both the work permit and the Iqama fees. Renewal of Iqama is also contingent on having a valid health insurance policy. In addition, if an expatriate resident sponsors dependents, he must pay the dependant cost to renew his Iqama as well as theirs. Read More: End of Service Benefits Calculator in Saudi Arabia
