I would like to get some feedback on the iqaama requirements/process. I was the first international employee at my company, so it was new for us. I had my undergrad and graduate diplomas certified in the USA (3 cerfitications: state of Texas/USA/Sudan embassy), they were shipped here and delivered to the Sudanese goverment (I dont know exactly which division), then they requested my high school diploma, I said "I dont have one", then I had a discussion with high-level admin at my company and I received a 6-month (not the original 12-month) visa in 10 days.
So my questions are: 1) is the "certified higher education diplomas" the typical requirement that you have experienced? 2) We are hiring internationally now, not just US, so any feedback I can get, whether for Americans or otherwise, is helpful.
