Working with them right now. They're absolutely lovely. They're a small team working on A LOT of visa applications however they still respond quickly amazingly enough. Believe my quote was for £670 which is an agreed fixed fee with NEOM. Mind you a large chunk of this fee makes allowance for the medical exam which I think costs £330?

Thank you for responding, and I agree they have been brilliant to deal with so far. That’s reasonable I wasn’t sure what kind of a bill to expect at the end.

Did your Acro Police certificate take 4 weeks? Im looking to fly out to NEOM on the 27th of Oct and I still need to do the medical and apply for the visa.

Thanks

No problem. This forum has helped me loads and just want to return the favour! The ACRO has been the most annoying and long part of this whole process. Bit of background, ACRO had a massive cyber attack and a lot of sensitive personal information was leaked therefore they're severely backlogged and trying to regain data compliance... Regardless of that ironic hiccup... I submitted my application on 9th August and received my certificate on 8th September. They can take up to 4-6 weeks to complete.

Once you get your ACRO A1 will advise you to quickly receive your medical because the medical exam lasts for a max of 30 days therefore within the 30 day window your visa will be processed. A1 told me they can do the visa in 8 WDs. The medical exam result takes 2-3 WDs (had mine on Harley Street this past Thursday).

Same here, it’s been so helpful.

Ah interesting I had no idea, I guess I won’t get my hopes up about getting it earlier. It should be the end of this month hopefully.

yes I was hoping to get the medical arranged as soon as I receive my certificate.

Have you already handed your notice in? I’ve been apprehensive until I have the flight booked but I think that won’t leave me enough time to serve my notice period.

Yeah it's a bit frustrating waiting because when you think of it it's actually a simple background check... Credence was able to do my background check pretty quickly... ACRO's hardest part seems to be just printing the form and having an officer check the results by way of quality control... But hey it's the UK, nothing is ever that simple...

Yes! You basically have to work backwards from your proposed start on site date and check your notice period. My company has been struggling so they were quite relaxed about letting me not serve the full notice period.

Thanks Diplo, this is a good starting point. How would you go about applying for roles? Is it directly via the companies portals or there are recruiters based in the UK who can help?

Get yourself on LinkedIn and make sure your profile is set to being open to work in the ME - if you have skills they need, then recruiters will be in touch. You can apply directly but most people have more success via LinkedIn.

Good luck.

Hi All, I am a bit concern about my recruitment process, I had a few calls of a headhunter, he help me with the CV presentation with Neom and then I did the interview with 4 managers last Septemeber 4th, I think they were happy with the interview but after 5weeks still nothing. Is someone with the same issue? It looks a bit frustating....

Thanks! Cheers

Sorry @killerabc, I can't write private messages, just let you know I did a few calls with my headhunter at the end of August, then an interview last September 4th but I havent heard anything back...this is quite frustrating, I dont know if all the process are the same slow speed than mine but honestly after 2 months this is a lot.

I was looking also the career opportunities in their website but my position is not there, I think manager positions are restricted to headhunters...

Regards

after your interview did they provide you a link to apply for the job through the portal? from my experience
interviews-> Apply for job -> send documents through (degrees, pre med check etc) -> Then you go Under offer and wait for a formal written offer. Although it seems that it takes some time to get a formal written offer (I have been waiting for months).

Hi. Might I ask where abouts you are? Reason I ask is I'm actively looking but the recruitment agencies doesn't seem to target Canadian workers which is who I am. I work in procurement
