Most Jobs In The Sales Sector Will Only Be For Saudi Citizens As Soon As Saudization Comes Into Effect Next Month

Saudi citizens are the only ones allowed to work in sales jobs, effective from September 11, according to many reports.

Yup.

Starting next month, staff working at clothing stores, furniture shops, vehicle and home appliances stores will all be Saudi nationals.

The Saudization process is a directive from the labor ministry and is parallel to the Kingdom’s goals for Vision 2030, to increasing Saudis rate of employment.

People on Twitter are happy about the news

But it seems that the original plan for 100% Saudization has also been amended

A user on Twitter @VivianNereim tweeted the Saudization and later discovered, as per the labor ministry’s guide, that instead of 100% Saudization, it is now 70%.

It appears from this labor ministry guide that the original decision for 100% Saudization of these jobs was amended to 70%, which means that some foreigners can remain and gives business owners more flexibility:

…which means some foreigners can, in fact, remain in some of these jobs.

Only ten days left until this comes into full play!
