Salam Brother, once your 2nd sponsor accepted you as they worker and you have all enough support documents from your 1st sponsor saying you already been released it will be easy to your 2nd sponsor to renew it for they will change your sponsorship but that depends on your agreement because expired iqama happened in your side so you either pay the whole damage or you can talk either the EXCO. or the 2nd CO. to have you pay half of it. goodluck.

Now transfer is done electronically. The new potential sponsor sends request to the old sponsor through the online system which the old one has to approve.

Re: Transfer of sponsorship with expire iqama

Good day to all of you.  I just want to ask if I can go back to my employer even if my Iqama is already expired?  I went on vacation and unfortunately my exit re-entry expired while on vacation.  My sponsor agreed to extend my exit-re-entry visa, thay sent all required documents to me by DHL for stamping by the Saudi Embassy here in my country.  My request for visa extension was rejected because according to the Saudi embassy here in my country my Iqama got expired.My question is can I still go back to Saudi Arabia on the same sponsor even if I have an exit re-entry visa and my Iqama just expired?  Would appreciate any feed back from you guys.

Exit re-entry visa is issued in a way that its expiry doesn't fall after the iqama expiry.

In case your iqama expires during your vacation, your saudi visa has in fact got void. And you can't come back with no visa.

Thanks for your response, but is it still possible for my sponsor to re-hire me and issue a new visa?  Will there be any problems?

If your iqama has expired, you don't need anything from your employer. Just go to the Ministry of Labor and ask them for help.

If you have a new job offer in hand, get the demand letter from the new employer and take it along.
If you want to go home on a final exit, ask the ministry for help.
