Ministry studying the possibility of online Iqama renewal
Residency Affairs Department is currently studying the possibility of renewing residencies online. Authorities are studying various proposals submitted by companies for this purpose, said Director General Maj Gen Talal Maarafi.
Maarafi said expats’ residency permits will be renewed online through the interior ministry website, and a search for an alternative to the iqama sticker is underway.
He added the online residency renewal project will enhance performance and ease matters for companies and encourage economic movement, besides saving time and effort.
