Who's changed job in KSA after being at the previous job for 9 months? I'm thinking of changing my job after being in the present one for 9 months.
I've heard varying stories about the embassies issuing another KSA work visa.

In effect you will have to get agreement from the current employer. Do not believe all this stuff about LONO/NOC being a thing of the past.

Dear sicklyman,

LONO = Letter Of No Objection

NOC = No Objection Certificate (I believe)

Some companies still ask for these if you've worked before or are working in the Kingdom. It means simply that the company is OK with your going to another job for another employer.

Regards,
John

Indramayu posted on this thread - and probably on others - on the subject of the NOC, also known as the LONO

I changed my job after 4 months and had no problems. I got an exit visa from my old job gave that to my new company and went home to the Uk to process my visa. I was back in the kingdom within 3 weeks.

You GAVE your EXIT VISA to your new job ? Something funny there. Maybe you mean you got a NOC and showed THAT to your new employer ?

Can you clarify ? For the sake of others dealing with these problems it is better to get the terminology right - even if no two situations are ever the same in KSA.

Sorry I should have been clearer, gave a copy
Of my final exit visa to my new company who said
That was all they needed to process my paperwork.
They did not ask for a lono and I did ask my old company
For one
