Help Needed - I am worried about the qualification "verification process"

Background:
Did all interviews, got the offer, signed the contract, gave my notice...supposed to fly to Riyadh at the beginning of June.

I listed 4 qualifications in my CV:
1 - College (Degree) that I never finished (from 2004). Attended for 3 years, have transcripts for it and proof I did well while doing it.
2 - Diploma in Financial Trading for which I only have a copy (cannot find the original).
3 - College Degree in Finance (all good there, I have everything),
4 - Diploma in Procurement and Supply (Level 4) - For which I passed a few exams, but never completed. I wrote "To be completed" in front of it in my CV - Don't have any document to prove.

Question: Will I have a problem?

I am supposed to get this done after I arrive in Riyadh.

Some visas will require a bachelors degree, nobody should really care that you started a few other qualifications that you didn’t complete

Anyone with similar experience who wants to share their experience?
Depends what your field is.
There is a special spouse work program here - a recruitment drive aimed at the stay at home spouses. From what I've observed, it's aimed more at those who don't have several years of experience and are more at entry-level or spouses who have been at home for several years with kids and are looking to put their foot back in the door work-wise. A very nice initiative in my opinion.
If you have been a full time professional for many years and have some specialism or experience that directly matches any of the full-time job vacancies here (check the Neom website for vacancies) then I've no doubt you will be taken seriously for full time employment. I'd think that a working couple would be an attractive option for Neom considering you take up less space (one cabin as opposed to two).
Feel free to message me if you like - I have kids around the same age as yours and have been here since last year. I like it very much

I understand as part of his VISA application he will have to undergo a medical. Is anyone aware of any restrictions as he takes a few medications here in the UK. In particular I have read that Anti-Depressants are banned - can anyone confirm please? Are there any other conditions that may cause any issues?
Many thanks - kersalic
Hi Kersalic, i have been offered a job at Neom and am in a similar boat to your husband - would you mind PMing me with more info? Would really appreciate it!

100% correct - The business and work visa require Bachelor Degrees. I think its almost the very first step in the process is to attest/legalise them!

I wouldn't bother mentioning your incomplete degree/course, from an employer's perspective they're pretty much irrelevant since you won't have any certficates to show for them (despite how good your performance was).

Re; your financial diploma, if the copy was issued from the same institution (rather than a photocopy) then i don't see why it can't be valid. In the UK for example, an original University degree certificate can only be issued the very first time, if you lose it then any subsequent replacement(s) will have 'duplicate' written on it - perfectly valid of course. Otherwise if you only have a photocopy then you will somehow need the issuing institution to issue a replacement because its impossible to get a photocopied document legalised/attested without having the original as well (if req'd).

It is exactly as it says.
  • 2 trips per month domestically within KSA
  • 1 flight to your home country. Allowance paid in January into your account. You use it whenever you want during the year.

Anyone currently at Neom able to advise how long the iqama process is taking from arrival to getting it? Can you even exit and re-enter on the standard 90 business visa till your iqama arrives?

No more business visas being issue since Jan 2022. You will enter on a single entry work visa. It will be then be converted to an iqama on arrival. This takes less than 2 weeks now, but be sure to get your medical done asap when you arrive as you need it to get an iqama. After you get an iqama they issue you a 6 month entry/exit visa so you can come and go as you please.

Thanks for that. I'll get straight onto it when I arrive.
