The Nitaqat Color system was introduced in Saudi Arabia in 2011 to encourage the employment of Saudi citizens in the private sector of Saudi Arabia. Currently, the Nitaqat color classifies organizations into 6 categories – Platinum, Green (High Green, Medium Green and Low Green), Yellow and the Red – depending on the size of the entity and percentage of Saudis to expatriate employees in their workforce [IQAMA RENEWAL FEES FOR 2019 & 2020].
Employers in the Platinum and Green categories represent the highest numbers of Saudi nationals, where yellow and red indicate the lowest ratios of Saudi nationals employed.
