The occupation is registered in the residence of foreigners; according to the law, the worker is allowed to work only by the domain listed in possession.
Individuals who do not work by their assigned profession commit legal violations for which they also face heavy fines.
A person asked how the profession can be changed in place about changing occupations in residence.
Answering this question on Twitter, it was stated that the Ministry of Manpower and Social Welfare had provided the facility of a career change on the website of Population.
All profession-related documents and documents will be required to be uploaded on the institution’s website before referring to the concerned institution.
It should be noted that in Saudi Arabia, foreign workers must adhere to certain occupations. Individuals involved in the technical professions must submit credentials from an educational or technical institution related to their work.
Workers in technical professions must become members of the Engineering Council for a fixed fee. After registering with the council, certified credentials related to their work should be submitted, after which they will be issued NOC.
The occupation is changed based on NOC issued by the council. The Ministry of Manpower has set up ‘Councils’ for different domains where foreign workers in these occupations are approved after taking professional tests and reviewing their credentials.
Regarding the issuance of exit promise, a person inquired from the permits, “Can exit promise visa be obtained in the presence of traffic challan?
Responding to a question, Jawazat said that it was mandatory for foreign workers who have been issued challans for traffic violations to ensure payment of challans for obtaining residential services. An exit visa cannot be accepted if there is a record of any breach.
It should be noted that the residence number of the foreign workers and the serial number of the driving license are the same. At the same time, in case of a traffic violation, the record is also fed into the central licensing system unless the challan amount is paid. Therefore, residence cannot be renewed, nor can it obtain an exit or final exit visa.
In addition, to buy a car, there must be no challan left. Remember that it is possible to get an exit promise or a final exit visa only after paying any fine.
