Saudi Arabia Will Bear Government Fees of Displaced Expatriates From Neighbouring Countries

Saudi Arabia will bear the government fees of displaced citizens from neighbouring countries, who are permitted to stay and rectify their status in the Kingdom, for a period of four years. This landmark decision was taken by the weekly session of the Council of Ministers, chaired by Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed bin Salman, in Jeddah on Tuesday.

The government fees exemption covers the residency permit (iqama) fee, work permit fee, transfer of service fee, profession change fee, and fee for employees of companies and establishments in the private sector, and this is for a period of four years from the date of rectifying their status after arrival in the Kingdom.

Additionally, the state will bear all previously incurred fees mentioned earlier and previous fines related to violations of the Residency Law for both these individuals and their companions.
