guide for Iqama validity

Hi,
      I had been working in a company in saudi Arabia from march 1st,2008 with a contract period of 2 years. But the company sent me back on April 16th, 2009 with 6 months unpaid vacation due to this recession though I had regular paid vacation. On Oct 8th, 2009 again that company called me back to rejoin with prior intimation of just before 4 days.I was unable to proceed in the same. My exit re-entry visa was expired on Oct 9th , 2009. But my iqama is valid till may 2010. How long I have to wait to work again in Saudi through other sponsor. Right now I am in India. Please kindly do the needful.

Regards
K.M

and you can start processing a new visa from another sponsor immediately if your current sponsor gives you a "no objection" letter.

if not, worst case would be waiting (FIVE) years to be eligible.
