Hello,
I am Krishna Dutta from India. I went to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on June 2014 on employment visa. After working for 3 months I came from there on September 2014 on final exit due to problem with my company. My iqama was prepare in this time also I have exit paper from the company. In January 2016 I got another job offer for Saudi Arabia. I applied for visa stamping on Mumbai consulate office but it was rejected due to my stay in Saudi Arabia last time less than six months. The agent dealing with the visa stamping is saying I can't get back to Saudi Arabia for work visa. As I am banned. Now 2 years have gone I want to go back to Saudi Arabia for work purpose. Can I go again to Saudi Arabia? I made iqama while working there. Also I have exit paper from the company. Recently I check my iqama status online. But I don't understand it. Can anyone help me in this regard. My iqama no is 2372148268. Please check my iqama status. Am I ban from Saudi Arabia? I don't have job for last 3 years. I need a job very badly. Please help me.

Hi Krishna,

From what I understand, the ban should be lifted after two years so you should be able to return. I think you should speak to a Saudi Arabian consulate or embassy in your area for clarity on this issue.

Best of luck.

Hi Krishna,

I'm afraid you will have to do that yourself - I'm just here to answer questions and give advice.

Thank you for your question. Wishing you all the best.

I'm not sure. I really think you need to speak to your local Saudi Arabian embassy as they will have experience with this and should be able to tell you the meaning of your status.
