However, you cannot check this for domestic workers and dependents because they are not registered with the Ministry of Labor.

What is the meaning of Iqama Red Green Check/Nitaqat?

Saudi Arabia passed a law called “Nitaqat” in 2011. The law’s purpose is to give Saudi Nationals jobs instead of foreigners.

  • A company in Green means that it has a high percentage of employees who are Saudi.
  • There are different requirements for Saudization in different industries.

The Mean of Green Category

  • Visa processing will be better for people from other countries. They won’t have to wait as long.
  • If someone from the Red category wants to change their status, a person from the Green category can sponsor them without asking for permission.
  • Companies can change what jobs their employees do. 
  • Companies can renew the Iqama of their employees 3 months before it is set to expire.

The Mean of Yellow Category

The Ministry of Labor issued an order to stop the “Yellow” category of the Nitaqat program. All entities that were in the “Yellow” category have moved to the “Red” category on Jan 26, 2020.

The Mean of Red Category

If your employer is in the red category of Nitaqat, that means that they are not able to sponsor you for residency.

In Saudi Arabia, foreigners cannot get visas. They cannot transfer sponsorship from other sponsors. When their employees want to go work at companies with Green status, they cannot stop them. They also can’t renew the iqamas of their employees or change their profession, and they can’t open new branches.

مستبعد = Excluded

If your employer is in the “مستبعد or excluded” category of Nitaqat, then it means that you are exempt from doing this: 

  • If you have less than 6 employees, Nitaqat requirements do not apply to you. Consider this the “Green” category.
  • The employer has less than 6 employees that he can register. He doesn’t have to follow the Nitaqat requirements. That means this category is equivalent to the “Green” category.
