How to Remove Huroob Status Online

If you are living in KSA then it is assured that you must have heard about Huroob status.

What is Huroob Status:

Huroob Status is a legal status that is given by the Sponsor to his employee. If a sponsor thinks his employee is working with someone else or he moved outside, he can file a report in Jawazaat. We call this report “Huroob Status” in Arabic. This status is on an individual’s Iqama. However, there is a catch. If the expat thinks this status is not justified, he can ask for the removal of that status. In this article, we will discuss how to remove Huroob status online in KSA.

How to Remove it from Iqama:

Well, if some sponsor filled a huroob against you, then there are several ways to remove the huroob, which may include the following steps.

  • The first and easy way to remove the huroob under the relaxed time is to convince your sponsor that you will regularly come on the job or apologize for anything that leads to this situation.
  • Change your sponsor/Kafeel or transfer the sponsorship to a new sponsor or Kafeel (if the previous sponsor has red color on NIKTAT)
  • Well, the third option is difficult but much better than the huroob punishment. If you got huroob, then go to the nearest detention center and report yourself. They will detain and deport you from KSA with a ban of 5 years in KSA. After that, you can come again to KSA with a new sponsor.
  • If you think your sponsor has filed false haroob against you, then you can report this incident in the Labor court.

  1. I can finish my contract last November.. if I can file a transfer they can give exit that’s why I will leave any consent last March.. but they can huroob me..they can not pay our driver and teamleader..

    1. I was falsely reported as huroob by my employer to prevent me from transfering to another company. And I filed a complaint in labor and it takes forever with 5% chance of huroob status to be canceled. So my advise, if you can avoid being put into that situation, please do. And if ever you get reported for huroob, try to fix that within 15 days and talk to your employer. I didn’t know this before that’s why it’s too late for me. Employers here in Saudi Arabia have all the power. You can fight them in labor court but it will take time until your resources are gone leaving you with nothing and a very small chance to win. That’s the saddest part.

  2. What is the new law about the huroob or run away?they will be in prison in 6months? And fined 50,000 sr?its true?

  3. Can the huroob status may come back after its done removing.? And it is possible that if you cannot transfer sponsorship immediately the cancelled huroob may be come back or no??
