We will do our best to process their travel documents as soon as possible.”  A team of labor officials is on process to be deployed to Saudi Arabia as soon as possible.

TAGALOG: 10 Steps on How to Avail Online Appointment of Saudi Arabia Amnesty Program

The 90 day amnesty period is ongoing in Saudi Arabia after it started last March 29. In line with this, the Consulate General of the Republic of the Philippines in Jeddah has issued a Public Advisory Number 11 Series of 2017.  The public advisory outlined the procedures and requirements on how to avail the Amnesty Program of the Saudi Government.  The following are the requirement and procedures for Filipinos on how to avail amnesty program of the Saudi Government.


90-Day Amnesty For Illegal Workers In Saudi Arabia Starts. Read To See If You Are Qualified

The Saudi Arabian government has begun implementing the “A Nation Without Illegal Expatriates” national campaign, a program launched through the General Directorate for Passports of the Ministry for Interior. Starting yesterday, 29th of March, undocumented workers in Saudi Arabia can go to their city branch of the Passport Department, locally known as "Jawazat," to finalize their departure procedures. A special section has been designated for amnesty seekers at the General Services Center that will implement the 90-day campaign, which will include all provinces.  The initiative was granted by the Interior Ministry for undocumented workers to correct their status and leave the country without risk of detention or penalty. Beneficiaries of the 90-day grace period include:  over-stayers who came to the Kingdom for a Haj or Umrah visit or transit residents with expired iqamas before March 29 pilgrims without Haj permits workers with a work permit but no iqama ID or residence card before March 29 infiltrators into the Kingdom’s territory runaway workers (huroob) who have a regular residence permit or iqama ID workers who want to take advantage of the grace period but do not know their employer According to Lt. Col. Talal Al-Shalhoub, spokesman of the General Directorate of Passports (GDP), overstayers caught after the 90-day grace period will risk paying fines. “Violators who don’t initiate correcting their status and get detained will be subject to enforcing the rules and regulations of the labor law and residency system.” To take advantage of the campaign, the violating expatriate must leave the country before the 90-day deadline is over. Penalties for violating the residency system includes a prison sentence and fines that can range from SR15,000 to SR100,000, plus deportation after serving prison sentence. Immigration officials also said that this amnesty may be the last opportunity for illegals to gain amnesty since the objective of the campaign is to rid the country of illegal residents completely. A similar campaign took place in 2013 to legalize the status of undocumented workers. A 90-day amnesty was announced in April 2013 before the late King Abdullah extended the grace period to November 2013. More than 2.5 million violators left the country under that campaign. According to the campaign, workers can return to the Kingdom on condition they pursue legal methods to gain entry.
