This post will help you on how to check huroob status if your name is put on it or not. And also describe the ways to remove it. So, Let’s start.

The above method is the best to check huroob status because it is for that purpose. There is another method using moi ksa ( ministry of interior) portal. But you may end up with more confusion because it doesn’t state about it clearly.
We have observed that people who are domestic workers ( house drivers, maids, housekeepers, saiq khas), have more chances for huroob. So it is in the hands of the kafeel or sponsor to put anyone on it.
5 Ways To Remove The Huroob Status in Saudi Arabia.
There are a few ways to remove huroob. We will discuss them one by one.
A settlement with Kafeel/Company to Remove Huroob.
The best way to remove huroob is to settle matters with your kafeel within first 15 days. In the Kingdom, Kafeel has complete authority, and he can do whatever he wants. Most of the time, Kafeel asks for money to remove huroob. But there are cases when kafeel took the money but didn’t remove huroob.
In that case, try to find a mediator. ( A person who is your kafeel’s friend or know kafeel very well or someone else who could help you). Pay the money in front of the mediator. There are high chances that kafeel will remove Huroob Status quickly.
Approach Labor Courts to Remove Huroob.
If you are sure that Kafeel/Company has misused his powers and you are innocent, then approach labor court immediately. According to the labor laws, your kafeel will pay fine if once proved that he reported a false huroob. You can transfer Iqama or go on final exit if you win the case. But before approaching the Court, It is better to contact your consulate because they can help you in many ways.
Wait for Amnesty announcement to Remove Huroob.
Almost once in a year, Govt announces amnesty scheme to remove huroob and frees the prisoners. But it is not sure that if you can transfer Iqama to another kafeel. In past years we have seen that Govt announced an amnesty. However, People with Huroob status had no choice, and they left the kingdom without paying any fine or detention. Anyhow sometimes it works, sometimes not.
Wait for ‘Red Status’ in Nitaqat for Kafeel, Its time to Remove Huroob.
If your kafeel/Company is in red, you can transfer Iqama. Huroob will become null and void automatically. Go to the new Kafeel and ask to forward your case to transfer Iqama. Upon successful completion of the process, Huroob will remove automatically.
Go to Detention Center, Surrender for Final Exit.
Sometimes Kafeels reports that you own their money, or you stole things along with huroob report. In that case, it is a great trouble for you. You have to settle the matters with Kafeel in any Case. But if your kafeel reported huroob only, and he is not resolving the issues also, then better go to any detention centre and report there. The jawazat will arrange your final exit in the next few days. Also, you can’t come back for the next five years. Besides, you can’t perform hajj or umrah during the period.
In the worst scenario if you have to choose the last option. then as a piece of information, all the major cities have the centres that you can find easily. In addition to that, to find your own location, Where Am I may help you. The best solution is always a negotiation with your kafeel. As it will help you to solve the issues and may prevent the surrender.
