The Ministry of Labor and Social Development (MoLSD) has added an online visa service through the Qiwa e-platform, which enables enterprises in the private sector with high Saudization rates compliant with the Ministry’s regulations to request and issue Instant visas, instead of waiting for the long journey of approximately 8 months.
This service aims to achieve significant growth in Saudization rates, through the application of the formula of “Saudization versus Instant recruitment”, the employer can obtain any number of visas in the case of the high rate of Saudization.
The Ministry specified the number of conditions for obtaining the service, including: “The status of the establishment should be good, its natiqat should be medium green and above, work permits must be valid, the establishment should be committed to the wage protection program, and the establishment should remain in the green zone for 13 consecutive weeks.” Or 26 intermittent weeks over the previous 52 weeks.
