The Saudi Ministry of Labor and Social Development has permitted Syrians who live in Saudi Arabia to attain temporary work permits or renew them if they had already been granted one via the Ajeer portal website.
The decision complies with the instructions to provide support and facilitations for Syrians considering the current circumstances in their country.
The ministry’s spokesperson Khaled Aba Al-Khail said this temporary work permit is a legal document pertaining to the contractual relation between the employee, in this case the Syrian visitor, and the facility and it’s issued by the employer.
Aba al-Khail said the service via the e-portal is available for all Syrian male visitors aged between 18 and 60. The visitor must have a valid visa issued by the General Directorate of Passports.
He called on owners of facilities and Syrians to benefit from this service by visiting the ajeer portal and following the instructions.
Ajeer is an e-portal that helps facilities confront any shortage in the number of required laborers and organizes and documents laborers’ work outside their ordinary workplace.
