Labour market access

From 15 April 2010, foreign workers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are subject to new rules in the sponsorship system. On 24 March 2010, the Ministry of Labor announced an increase in the minimum contract period before a foreign worker may transfer sponsorship.
 
Under the new rules, foreign workers must stay with their sponsor for at least two years before they can move to another company.
