Does Iqama Expires Upon OFW’s Resignation?


Dilemma ito ng ilang mga OFWs na nasa Saudi Arabia – ang usapin tungkol sa iqama o ang residence permit ng mga foreign workers sa bansang ito.


If an OFW resigned from his job prior to his contract’s end and if the iqama is not yet expired, this is what will happen according to one of OFWGuideforum’s resident forum guru:


“If you resigned, your visa will be cancelled including your iqama – regardless it is still has few months or even a year of validity.

And without NOC and unfinished employment contract, you will have an automatic ban for 2 years.”

Employment Contract Replacement, A Threat to OFWs

Overseas Filipino workers or OFWs are advised to be aware of employment contract substitution that is becoming a normal scenario for Filipinos who are to work abroad.


The Philippine government is taking up all measures to ensure the safety and welfare of OFWs in foreign countries by creating a standard employment contract. The standard employment contract stipulates various terms and conditions to be agreed upon by the hired OFW and the foreign employer.


Informations like job position, contract duration, salary rates, benefits, overtime pay, just causes for termination and other important matters should be included in an OFWs employment contract.


Most OFWs in Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries encounter this replacement of employment contract. Upon arrival in the kingdom, OFWs are once again asked to sign a new contract which has a big difference from what they’ve signed before.


Contract substitution is one of the most common problems of OFWs and it usually leaves them underpaid and with extended contract duration. This will also be a mean for foreign employers to abuse and violate OFWs abroad.


OFWs should seek first the assistance of the Philippine Embassy in such cases of employment contract substitution.
