What if my Company is Green or Red?

Always keep on the eye on company status through your sponsor is responsible but you as an employee should inform the concerns if you can that is why it is better if you know the company nitaqat category.

Remember Iqama or Company/Mosassa/Kafeel Nitaqat status is the same thing

Iqama Green Status

It is considered quite safe as your company is following all the requirements of MOL as per Labour laws. It means your company window is open for any kind of transaction.

Iqama Red Status

This is quite alarming as your company window is closed and you even will be unable to process exit re-entry to go on vocations unless it turns green.

At this point, you can transfer your kafeel without consent of the previous kafeel but the other company you are transferring should be in green at least.

Platinum & Silver Category

These companies are highly privileged and are well placed as they are following MOL instructions. These have a very high number of Saudi employees working with them.

Wrap Up

Nitaqat system is all about the number of studies in any firm. Higher the number is safer the company to work with & vice versa.
