If you have heard about the News of Expatriate Fees which will be imposed from July 2017 for Expatriates then there have been many rumours across many websites that Fees will only be levied for parents and male children who are above 18 years of age and household workers.
As per the latest news from sources, Fees will not be for First Wife, Sons and Daughters who are under 18 years of age. We are still waiting to hear Official statement or News from Saudi Goverment on this.
Few of the companies have already issued notice to their employess regarding the Expat Fees and how much it will be levied and on whom it will be levied.
Its now very difficult for Expatriates living in Saudi Arabia that they need to pay for every dependent and even Company needs to pay Fees for keeping more number of Expats (Wherein Expats outnumbers Saudi Nationals)
