The station was previously named Nee Soon South. It was renamed to Khatib in January 1987 along with Yishun MRT station which was initially named Nee Soon.[1][2] In 1990, a power failure which occurred at Yishun station affected services at this station.[3]

In 2002, lift upgrading commenced at this station and was completed on 10 January 2003.

Installation of the half-height screen doors started and operations commenced on 30 September 2011.[4] The station was installed with high-volume low-speed fans and the fans started running since 28 August 2012.[5]
