SR 2400 fee for IQAMA Renewal (Labour Card)

Government of Saudi Arabia has endorsed SR 2400 fee for Labor Card renewal, required every year with the IQAMA renewal. The fee is applied from the beginning of the new Islamic year (1st Mahurram 1434), that is from 15th November 2012 as per Gregorian calendar.

The main reason this decision has been taken is to encourage the private companies to increase the number of their Saudi National employees. This is one of the step for reducing the unemployment for Saudi Nationals.
