(MENAFN - Arab News) The Ministry of Labor has made it obligatory for female teachers to transfer their sponsorship to the schools they work for.
Ziya Nadwi, an official from an international school, confirmed to Arab News that Ministry of Labor officials visited different schools for inspection and gave a one-month grace period for teachers to transfer their sponsorship, after which they will inspect schools again.
"Iqama transfer has become mandatory for all teachers," he said.
Shumaila Akbar, a teacher from another international school, told Arab News that officials came to her school and demanded a list of teachers who are not under the sponsorship of the school. Teachers were given an ultimatum to either transfer their sponsorship or leave the job.
"Ministry officials held a meeting with teachers and told everyone that it is mandatory to transfer their sponsorships," said Akbar.
Another teacher, Fatima Saleem, said that female teachers and schools are under pressure and have been in limbo for a long time.
"I have no idea why the Education and Labor Ministriesid not make a definitive decision on the matter. First, they said teachers were obliged to transfer their sponsorships. Then we were told that teachers could remain in the profession as long as they are granted a work permit by the Education Ministry, and now, they have reverted to the original decision. Teachers are confused and don't know what to do, " said Saleem.

Padma Hariharan, director and head of the Novel International Group of Institutions, told Arab News that teachers who have received eligibility certificates from the Education Ministry still have to transfer their sponsorships onto the school.
"Teachers who have acquired seven points in the new eligibility system need to get their status transferred to the school within a month. All other teachers still have to get their certificates attested. A period of one term has been given for these teachers to get their paperwork in order," she said.
Attestation from the Saudi Consulate will only be granted if the school has a visa number.
"Most schools are not in possession of such visas," Hariharan said.
