Wondering how to transfer sponsorship when the father or sponsor is dead? In Saudi Arabia, a large population of families lives under the sponsorship of their fathers. It becomes very tricky for families living in the kingdom in case their father dies and there are very vulnerable to deportation to their native country. This is highly possible unless one of the sons of the family is working on a job under different sponsorship of the employer it is possible for him to take the rest of the family members under his sponsorship i.e. mother, unmarried sister and other sibling below age 18.
