Check Saudi Iqama Validity Online
The residence permit in Saudi Arabia is known as Iqama or Muqeem. Iqama is required to be renewed on an annual basis. Expat residents in Saudi Arabia are required to check the validity of Iqama online, as it is not printed on the card.
Here are all three methods to check your Iqama Expiry date online in Saudi Arabia.
1 – Iqama Check with Absher Website
You can check your Iqama using the Absher website and this requires an Absher account. If you are not registered with Absher, register now, and here is the procedure for how to register with Absher.
Follow the steps below:
- Visit the Absher website: https://absher.sa
- Then select English from the top menu
- Log in with your Absher username and password
- You will be required to enter the OTP received on your registered mobile number
Find and select “Query Iqama Expiry Service” in your Dashboard.

- Once installed, log in with your username and password.
- Type the obtained OTP (One-Time Password) on your registered mobile number.

You can then view your Iqama Validity in Hijri Calendar (YYYY / MM / DD) format.
3- Check Iqama with Ministry of Labor Website (MOL KSA)
This is the easiest way to check your Iqama expiry date if you are not registered with Absher or if you do not have access to your registered mobile to receive an OTP. Iqama number and date of birth are only required for this method.
