Time frame for Iqama Transfer after Resignation

posted by Zakir

I have been in Kuwait since 2011. I have changed few jobs during this period.

I have been working in a senior position in a company since 1 year and I have resigned in Jan 2020. My last day of work Is 1st April 2020.

My Iqama is expiring in July 2020. HR from My current company says as per their policies and new laws, I have to transfer my Iqama within 15 days.

I am not sure how true it is. Can anyone please advise.

Even if I manage to find a new employer, I don''t think they will agree to transfer before probation period.

Genuine advise please.
