I would like to know whether expatriates on camel shepherd visas or some other shepherd visas can transfer to another sponsor after one year according to the new law.
Answer: Yes, you can transfer to another company or sponsor if you were locally hired and have been with your current sponsor for at least one year. But there are some restrictions. You can’t transfer to a different line of work but only to a company or sponsor who also hires you as a shepherd. The government has restricted the transfer of all such expatriates who were hired as shepherds or on farms.
