How to Refund Iqama Funds from MOI

I will explain here how you can check MOI available funds against your Iqama. And if you want you can get back into your preferred bank account easily.

The Interior Ministry of Saudi Arabia has made it public free that anyone can check their own Iqama funds available.

This fund is the amount that you or your sponsor have paid against you Iqama or Muqeem card for any purposes like Driving License, Family visit visa, Iqama renewal, Visa extension and so on. You normally pay the fee against your request but once the fee is no more at portal it means your transaction is completed like you got the visa extension or any other service is completed.

    1. Dear Qaiser, Let me know if i got your question clearly. You will see these 5 major fund deposits;
      1. Sponsrees Deposite
      2. Vehicle Deposit
      3. Driving License Deposite
      4. Passport Deposit
      5. Labour Deposite

      Just follow the steps and you can check in your Absher account like if you see there are clearly mentioned in category wise. Now, you can further check on which category your fund belongs.
      Still, if you are unclear then try to refund it. Hope you can!
      Anything unclear please ping me back.
      Thank you for asking your query. If you have solved your matter by other means then please advise so that others can also benefit from your experience.

  2. I have some available funds in passport deposit and I want to deposit funds more and I want to use at all one time. is it possible and How? please explain.

    1. Hi Ali, just add more funds on that particular category and use once. Or you can first refund all and then utilize. Let me know if you are still unable to understand.

  3. I deposited 200 rials Exit Re-entry towards my sons Iqama. His Name appeared after I selected the duration. The payment was processed from my bank and is reflecting in the transactions as a 200 rials SADAD payment towards the exit re-entry.

    When I check the funds in my account both under my Iqama and my sons Iqama there is no payment being displayed in Absher. Its been more than 3 hours since my payments. Any suggestions?

    1. Dear Mr Rizwan, sometimes the online system takes a bit longer as it is also connected to other networks. No worries, it will show up soon.

  4. How to check someone else’s iqama fund. One of my friend has just arrived and this will be his first iqama.
    The agent told him that fees paid against his iqama and sent him a picture from atm showing the amount and iqama number.
    He has waited long time and want to confirm it.
    I tried but every time I end up in my own Abshar that shows me my available funds. And there is no option where I can enter his iqama number.
    Thanks.

    1. Dear Mr. Nasir Ali
      Previously it was easy to check Iqaama funds for your friends but after the latest update on the MOI Absher website is not available as per my information. Maybe later they will allow as in case of traffic violations. Now only you can check for your dependents only. Your kafeel can check and send the screenshot in that case.
      I am sorry that I cannot provide you the solution but if you come across any solution please share so that others can get a benefit.

  5. hi,
    i deposited 200 sar from my samba bank towards single exit reentry. but my employer also paid 200 from his side. now in my absher i can see 200 is available under passports section. i am unable to get refund from my bank side also. kindly need advice.

  6. I have deposited money from my friend’s account, Now he went exit. In MOI, Available Fund Details section the paid amount is available. How to refund the money..?

    1. I consider that amount is in your MOI account as final exit cannot be processed if there is amount until cleared. Now you can try by attaching it to your own bank account.

  7. I Try to refund 1000 SAR Profession change deposited in Absher but unable to refund message

    Error Message: “Code: No payment found”

    Amount showing in: Passpart (Absher)-1000.00

    Please inform me what can i do further to refund this amount. Is bank will solve the issue?

    1. Dear Shetty, you can try again later as sometime the system is down. Either amount is already cut. Bank cannot help you out.
