What does your Nitaqat color mean?.
The Nitaqat Color system was introduced in Saudi Arabia in 2011. It encourages the employment of Saudi citizens in the private sector of Saudi Arabia. Nitaqat color classifies organizations into six categories – Platinum, Green (High Green, Medium Green and Low Green), Yellow, and the Red. Nitaqat color depends on the size of the entity and the percentage of Saudis to expatriate employees in their workforce.
Red Iqama Status
If your Iqama color is red, it shows your company does not meet the minimum requirements of Saudiization. However, you will be able to transfer your sponsorship to any other company without the consent of the sponsor.
Yellow Iqama Status
Yellow color shows that your company or establishment is currently at risk, but it can be fixed by employing more Saudi nationals or by paying GOSI dues.
Green Iqama Status
There are three types of green (High Green, Medium Green, and Low Green) categories. High-green shows the healthiness, and the lower one shows the company is just ok; however, any time it can be changed to yellow.
Platinum Iqama Status
The Platinum color category reveals the company is fully fit, and this category of companies is eligible for all the privileges offered by the Ministry of Labor.
