The procedure of updating passport information with Jawazat in Saudi Arabia is known as Naqal Maloomat. The Naqal Maloomat procedure can now be completed online through Absher without visiting the Jawazat office. This way, the renewed passports of both expat workers and their dependents can be updated.
However, the Naqal Maloomat procedure for expat workers can only be completed through his sponsor‘s Absher account.
Expat dependents (family members) Naqal Maloomat can be done through the “head of the household” (Father or Husband) Absher Account.
