The Ministry of Labor and Social Development announced the launch of instant labor visa service through its qiwa electronic portal.

This will enable those private sector firms, which achieved a higher percentage of Saudization and full compliance of the ministry’s regulations, to obtain visa instantly without going through the long recruitment process that takes normally around eight months.

There are several prerequisites for private companies and establishments to enjoy this privilege and that includes career advertising and fulfilling other requirements related to the size of the firm and the volume of contracts.

This service aims to achieve significant growth in Saudization rates through applying a formula of “localization versus instant recruitment”, as it enables the employer to obtain any number of labor  visas in the event of achieving a higher rate of Saudization in the firm.
