JEDDAH: The Ministry of Labor has set Rabiul Awwal 30, 1433H (Feb. 22, 2012) as the last date for expatriates to change their professions in their resident permits (iqamas).
About 35,000 expatriates have benefited from the service since it was launched on Nov. 29, 2011.
The changes were done electronically without referring to any labor office,” said spokesman of the ministry Hattab Al-Anzi, adding that the service will come to en end on Feb. 22, 2012.
The ministry was providing this service to all expatriate workers disregarding whether they work in companies classified as red or yellow or green. “After this date changes of occupation will be limited to establishments in the excellent and green categories only,” the spokesman said.
He recalled the ministry had put some conditions on the amendment of some occupations including engineering. “Those who want to change their profession to engineers have to come in person to the labor office with documents proving their specialization,” he said.
Al-Anzi also said medical personnel such as doctors, surgeons, dentists, nurses, pharmacists and others have to show official licenses from the Saudi Medical Specializations Authority before having their occupations changed.
He explained that jobs limited to Saudis only were exempted from amendment. “These include directors of HR and PR, personnel specialists, time keepers, receptionists, cashiers, security guards, pursuers and others specified by the Council of Ministers,” he said.
The spokesman warned the ministry would take punitive measures against any establishment providing incorrect data about the occupations of their foreign employees. “The punishments may include preventing these establishments from foreign recruitment or suspending their licenses for periods of up to five years,” he said.
Human resources expert at the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry Al-Sharif Awad Al-Hibaili said giving expatriates an opportunity to amend their occupations was an important step toward organizing the Saudi labor market. “The Ministry of Labor has given all the private establishments and companies the opportunity to change the occupations of their foreign workers electronically without referring to the labor offices,” he said.
Meanwhile, Hamad Al-Rajbi, a public service specialist, said the change of occupation is a matter that also involves the Passports Department, which has to approve any change in the official papers of expatriates.
He noted many of the occupations that were amended involved simple labor. “Very few professionals were able to amend their occupations. They included a medical doctor who came to the Kingdom as a laborer,” he said.

Now our dreams comes true Very Soon (Inshallah)...
The GOVT of Punjab Said:
The Scheme of studies and different level programs will be on building block concept. To provide students the exit at all levels with certain skills and certificate / Degrees for their well absorption in the market. Ministery of Science and Technology will be requested to establish a "PTC - Pakistan Technology Council" like PEC - Pakistan Engineering Council to register and regulate the practice of the graduate of University of Technology. The Public Sector hiring authorities will be requested to prefer these technologies graduates at par or batter than respective engineering graduates. This will eliminate the difference / biasness in Technical and Engineering Education. The deprivation in the Graduate of Technologies will be eliminated by bringing them at par in the knowledge and better in the skills than Engineering Graduates. This will provide future path to the progressive students, wishing to continue their studies at specialized in their respective Engineering Technologies.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa begins work on technical education promotion plan:
The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government on Wednesday launched work on preparation of action plan for promotion of technical and vocational education under 'National Skills Strategy 2009-13'.
The National Skills Strategy 2009-13 was prepared by the federal government in collaboration with the provincial governments and was given the name of 'Vision 2030'.
Similar programs will also be held in other provinces.
German Technical Assistance (GIZ) is providing assistance under technical & vocational education training (TVET) reforms support.
Addressing the participants of the workshop, KP Minister for Technical and Vocational Education, Mehmood Zeb Khan said that the purpose and objectives of the workshop were to identify weaknesses in technical and vocational education and prepare an action plan for their redressal.
The Minister of KPK said that the provincial government is making sincere efforts for the promotion of technical and vocational education and has included 40 development schemes in this regard in annual development program (ADP) for financial year 2011-12 and had sanctioned a hefty amount of Rs 2 billion for them.
He dispelled the impression that the establishment of TVETA would affect the service structure of the employees of the technical education institutes and said that it would rather accelerate the process of the initiation of schemes.
He said that the provincial government has already passed law for the educational sector.
The minister said that more than 400 vacancies exist in the department of Technical Education, which would be filled through recruitment of qualified B Sc Engineering and B-Tech degree holders.
He added that the government had also upgraded 11 technical colleges and is constructing the buildings of eight technical colleges in which the classes of B-Tech level would start.
He said that the GIZ would also support the provincial government in the rehabilitation of the vocational colleges and introduction of reforms in the Board of Technical Education so their degrees will be recognised every where in the world.

The response received from the Washington Accord in reply of BTAC Query It is quite obvious that we have to make establish our own separate Pakistan Technology Council (PTC) so that we could pursue with the washington Accord for the recognition of our B.Tech degree internationally because PTC is the only forum which will effectively project our true image, contribution in progress and prosperity of pakistan.
BTAC (B.Tech Action Committe) Query:
The B.Tech Hons (4-years) degree is being offered by the 22 public and private sector chartered Universities and Degree Awarding Institutes at their main campuses, sub campuses and affiliated colleges.
The Technology and Engineering Education Routes in Pakistan can be viewed in the attached file please.
The IEA defines the education (no. of years) against each Accord which is quoted and reproduced below:
Agreements covering tertiary qualifications in engineering:
There are three agreements covering mutual recognition in respect of tertiary-level qualifications in engineering:
It is requested to clarify please that the B.Tech Hons (4-year) degree lies in which Accord either in Washington Accord or Sydney Accord?
Thank you very much.
Response from IEA Accords:
Thanks for your e mail.
Firstly Pakistan (Pakistan Engineering Council) has provisional status of the Washington Accord (WA). Once they gain full Washington Accord status it is up to them (the PEC) to determine which programs in Pakistan will be accredited as having WA equivalence.
As to the Sydney and Dublin Accord, at this point of time there is no engineering council / body in Pakistan that has provisional or full status of these; so no programs in Pakistan will be recognised under the Sydney or Dublin Accords.
A point of clarification; for a body within a country to be a recognised as a full member of the Washington Accord (or any of the other accords), there is a process that the country goes through. They must apply and the systems and processes that are in place in that country (for example in the academic learning institutions) are examined by a review panel. The process continues with regular reviews being made of member nations who have been granted WA status.
In simple PEC recognised from WA (Washington Accord) whose registered only professional Engineers (BE/BSc Engineers) and they dont have authority to registeration of Engineering Technologists (DAE, B.Tech, BS.Tech, BSc Technology & M.Tech). For the registeration of Engineering Technologists, they also required recognition through "The Sydney Accord" then PEC have permission to registered the Engineering Technologists now we have two option of registeration.
PETC (Pakistan Engineering & Technologists Council):
PEC make a seperate department for Engineering Technology and also changed his name like PETC whose also recognised through "The Sydeny Accord" then PETC have permission to registered the Engineering Technologists but on the other hand PEC degrade the Engineering Technologits from last 28 years then hows this possible that PEC will give the equal rights to Engineering Technologists in future like BE/BSc Engineers after the upgradation of PEC to PETC.
PTC (Pakistan Technology Council):
MOST (Ministery of Science and Technology) must make a seperate platform for all Engineering Technologists (DAE, B.Tech, BS.Tech, BSc Technology & M.Tech) named PTC whose recognised through "The Sydney Accord" according to the suggestion of IEA Accords, Because PTC is the only forum which will effectively project our true image, contribution in progress and prosperity of pakistan. This forum will eliminate all disparities whose facing the Engineering Technologists.
