Temporary Work Visa In Saudi Arabia
As mentioned above, you now have the opportunity to work temporarily in Saudi Arabia. According to a news report by Gulf News, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has introduced a temporary work visa that allows companies here to issue a temporary work visa. This allows holders to work for three months from the date of entry in Saudi Arabia. Not to mention, the permit can also be extended for a similar period, which means that employees can work for up to 6 months in Saudi Arabia! Moreover, this visa does not even require the company to issue any separate work permit and residency for the workers for this duration of the job. As it happens, this visa is issued electronically and is valid for one year from the date of issue.

How Can Companies Issue This Visa?
As it happens, companies can apply for this visa through a platform called Qiwa. For those who aren’t aware, Qiwa offers services pertaining to the Ministry of Human Resources & Social Development. As a result, employers can not only digitally create but also authenticate employees’ contracts on the platform in Saudi Arabia.
Moreover, this platform also enables employees to approve, request changes, or even reject their contracts through their Qiwa accounts. So, once both parties have agreed to the contract, it is authenticated and approved by the Saudi Ministry of Human Resources & Social Development. Moreover, the platform can be accessed in six languages, such as Arabic, English, Hindi, Tagalog, Urdu, and Bengali.
It’s worth mentioning that on this platform, the visa costs Saudi Riyal 1000 and is issued instantly. So, what do you think about this temporary visa development?
