A sponsor ID is a number that consists of 10-digits. This number is allotted to a business or an organization by the Ministry of Labor. So, if you are an employee of a certain company, you can check the sponsor ID by asking HR department of your company.
In addition to this, you can access the sponsor ID by checking the visa on your passport.
However, for a dependent, the sponsor ID is different. For dependents, the sponsor ID is the Iqama number of their guardian in Saudi Arabia.
