New mechanism to receive domestic workers launched at Jeddah airport

The Saudi Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development announced the implementation of the new mechanism to receive domestic workers at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, starting on Sunday, Oct. 25, 2020.

Recruitment offices and companies will be responsible for receiving and accommodating domestic workers who have been hired through brokers and those arriving on the exit and return system, as this mechanism, which was previously approved, is already in place at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh.

According to the new mechanism, recruitment companies and offices have to receive domestic workers who arrive for the first time immediately after they complete their entry procedures at the airports while employers need to receive domestic workers arriving on the exit and return system directly and the task of receiving them is under the responsibility of employer directly.

The new mechanism will be applied in other international airports in the Kingdom, and the date of its commencement will be announced later.
