Checking Iqama Red/Green/Platinum color status is really important as it enables a lot of favours for employer if the Company is in Green.
But, if it is not Green/Platinum then there are several things which employer can’t do, it is like hanging on a bridge!
What is Nitaqat Saudization Program?
First things first, if you don’t know what is Nitaqat, let me explain you in detail as this is important to have this knowledge.
The Ministry of Labor (MOL) initiated in 2011 a nationalization initiative known as Nitaqat Saudization.
This is a fantastic effort that will help the economy and create jobs.
To explain it in a nutshell, private companies are urged to hire more Saudi nationals under this scheme, the more the Saudi Nationals a company have, the more higher status the company will get.
What does it mean by Red/Green/Platinum Color Status?
Red status indicates that the business is not in compliance with government rules & regulations of Nitaqat Saudization.
So, if your company status is in Red it means the company unable to perform governmental tasks such as renewing Iqama of the employees or hiring new employees etc.
Low/Medium/High Green (اخضر)
Green status indicates that the business complies with regulations but the higher the status of the Green like Medium or High, the company may have more benefits.
Platinum status allows companies to exceptional benefits and signifies that the business complies with all regulations.
