Maktab Amal (مكتب العمل) is a word used for labor office.  مكتب means office and العمل means labor.

Work permit fee, commonly known as Maktab Amal Fee, is always paid by the sponsor against his employees to the Ministry of Labor.

  1. I processed my friends docs day before the day lunch time and until now am not getting any update and y is it taking too much time. The reason that am talking like this is because my friend’s father got expired. Without the update I can’t even process his Visa procedures … Irritated by this act. And the kafil is telling that we have to wait … Then wat else we are waiting for his maktab Amal process…

    1. Yes, Kafil is right but one thing you can do if you can visit Maktab e Amal with the Kafeel. The online system is the most efficient way for such issues but sometimes it happens.

    1. It may be because of either system down. I suggest you try again and I hope your Sadad number is correct. Maybe because of National Day.

    1. Dear Mohammed, the Iqama and related fees are charged annually. I cannot understand how it has happened in your case. Still, you can try to check in your Absher account if anything there and pending….here is the link to follow the procedure;
      This is just a try as fees are annual, not quarterly/monthly basis.

  7. Thanks for your valauble information, as per your instruction i checked my absher but no fund is availble in my account. please tell me what is the way to settle this issue.

      1. i checked MOL sight but under my iqama number saddad number not showing.what is the problem of that.i checked my friends iqama too number is available.

  8. Sir I change company and 7 days ago my naqal kafala process complete but now iqama renewal process not yet complete and option is coming (laboratory office not approved) so why this process not complete and how long this approved

    1. Check if there is any fee is pending. I tell you when I changed my kafeel and later there was an issue during renewal that address needs to be updated. That fee was linked to the Saudi Council of Engineer as I have an engineering profession. I paid and it got renewed.
      See if you have this kind of any fee pending.

        of engineering fees, iqama renewal 650 these all fees paid .only maktab amal process pending. Before 7 days I wait maktab amal response. If you know this problem plz help me

        1. Dear, please recheck if there is any pending fee in the Saudi Council of engineers. If this is your first transfer then a fee of address change has to submit there.

          1. Yes my first transfer plz guide me how to change adress and only company name change or any other changes

          2. No need to change anything. Just need to pay SAR 100 0r 200 to SCE if it appeared there. In my case, I have to pay as I was facing the same issue back then.

    1. Mr. Khan
      You can read the attached Labor law and can act accordingly. I hope this is the latest documents out there. Here it is
      Make sure to read it thoroughly and also go through this blog

      Regarding company change is not that easy for that your current employer should be willing to release you or you have completed your current contract.
      This is all I can say.
      You can contact directly to the labor court.

  11. As per law employees passport should be with employee but our company not providing passport telling our passport is his property and they will not give until contract expires but we are told in india that ur passport will be with u and as per saudi law also passport should be with employee right.

  12. Sir now maktab amal Payment number came but when I putt this number in sadad online payment in alahli online he says (payment number is not correct)
    Now what I do

    1. You try to solve the issue amicably with the company & tell them the issues you are facing. Or else you can contact the labor court directly.

  13. Sir the company belongs to saudi nationalist we are all afraid of going labour court he already told i will give passport to u that’s are ur property.

    1. Dear try to solve issues with the employer. But what you will do even he handed over you the passports?
      Labor court is the last option. Yes, the Saudi court will not give any favor to Saudi nationals. If he is wrong will face the consequences. This is what makes Saudia great.

  14. We all want go back to home country is labour court can solve ur problems and let us help to go back to home country or transfer the ownership to other company to do job

    1. Dear, what do you want to ask? I am sorry I cannot provide you any legal support or suggest any company to contact with.

    Hello Sir
    I am new here, I just need to know what is fee for Maktab al Amal for Fani Kaharba for new visa holder, till this day the Iqama has not been Issued.
    The website is absolutely changed with new feature.
    Please need you precious advise

  16. Hello
    I came to saudi arabia a month ago in feb 2020 on work visa(90dag single entry).
    Now i want to know that. Can i get transfer feom my currrent employer to new employer on visa it self. With put making iqama? If both parties agrees?
    One more thing i read is if kafeel gave the transfer he will loose visa? Can you describe how and why?
    As you mentioned they not charging workpermit fee for industrial workers.then the whole amount become very less.
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Kafeel will lose a visa if he transfers you. Because he was issued a visa according to his business let say 10. Now if he transfers you that means he doesn’t have enough business to accommodate you. Yes, the industrial workers are exempted from the Maktab e Amal fee.
