  1. My profession on my iqama is not engineer so I registered with Saudi Council of engineers with the hope that they will help me change the profession on my iqama. After registering and paying the SAR 1250 via SADAD I was given a membership ID. I went to the Saudi Council of engineers office after that and asked for the letter but unfortunately they told me that there is no letter now and that I should go to the Labor office myself and get my profession changed and that they wont give me any letters/documents. Now I am not sure what to do. If anyone has any knowledge or experience on how to proceed please let me know.

    • Actually Saudi council of engineers(SCE) gave you copy of profession change letter, they send original to the MOL themselves…Just go to MOL office ask if the receive any letter from SCE of profession change under your iqama number.

    • dear just go to labour office r give thid membership number to gro,now sec not issuing any letter, they interlinked online.
      did u ask after how long they issue the hard copy certificate

  2. My profession on my iqama is Support Technician, My education qualification in BSc (Agriculture) 4 years graduation. I registered and Upload my all attested documents with Saudi council of engineers. But they rejected my application, stating that
    “Your qualifications do not meet the requirements for registration, and your application cannot be accepted”
    I called Saudi council of engineers 920020820, to ask about the reason for rejection.
    One of the Saudi council tele-caller/ Executive told me that, the profession is Support Technician that is the reasons they rejected my application.

    In my current company i am working as an Engineer, I ask my company to change my Iqama profession to Engineer. They agree and they take my all attested certificate.

    If they change my Profession to Engineer, So i can apply again in SCE? Please let me now, If someone have knowledge about this

  6. Dear Borthers,

    I submitted my documents online on Saudi engineering council website. I paid the amount 500 Sr. for the initial process. Now i received an email regarding the 750 Sr. to complete the process.
    My question is that i am on student Iqama. My Iqama is renewed as a student.
    Now i joined the new company.
    Is it ok to pay the fees for the completion of process as i submitted my previous Iqama and Company Letter on SEC web portal ? Or should i wait for my Iqama transfer to the company and then get the letters for Saudi Culture & Saudi Embassy Attestation.

    Can someone help me with this matter.

    Need your kind support.
