Saudi Arabia to issue, renew residency permits every 3 months

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Interior announced on Tuesday that it has started issuing and renewing residency permits (Iqama) for residents on a quarterly basis, except for domestic workers.

The move is in cooperation with the country’s general directorate of passports, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development and Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA).

According to the new scheme, employers can renew work permits, residency permits and provide financial compensation every three, six, nine, and 12 months.

The general directorate of passports clarified that the service is available via Absher Business and Muqeem platforms.

Meanwhile, the human resources ministry said services related to work permits can be accessed through the Qiwa Platform and the electronic portal for labor services.
