Hiring foreigners who are mothers of Saudi men and women, as well as children of Saudi women, will be allowed in those professions which are restricted only to Saudis.
Minister of Labor and Social Development Dr Ali Al-Ghafis issued an order in this regard, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Sunday.
Employing anyone in this category will be counted as one Saudi employee while calculating the percentage of Nitaqat Saudization program.
“All the previous ministry decisions that are contrary to this order will be deemed null and void,” the minister said while adding that the new order has come into force from the time of its issuance.
