Saudi Arabia - All Expats/OFWs in Government Jobs Will Be Terminated By 2020

A shocking news was published recently in the newspaper Saudi Gazette, one which can have huge implications for the thousands of OFWs working in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Apparently, there is a plan to remove all expatriate workers from government departments within three years is in the works.  Believed to be one of the initiatives of the National Transformation Program 2020, the plan directs the Ministry of Civil Service to ask all ministries and government departments to replace all expatriate workers by the end of 2020.  The move was apparently announced in a meeting last May 8, which was attended by senior officials from ministry and HR experts from different ministries, departments, universities and other public sector. The meeting, which focused on the initiative of Saudization plan by 2020, was said to be followed by a workshop titled "Job nationalization." The announcement was made public by deputy minister Abdullah Al-Melfi. Melfi further said “The complete nationalization of government jobs is an important objective of the National Transformation Program 2020 and the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.” It was said that there were 70,000 expats in the public sector at the end of last year. As for the number of OFWs, it is unknown  so far as no solid statistics in available.  Also unclear is the scope of the plan to remove expats. In the civil sector, the government employs thousands of expats across a broad range of industries, from ministry offices to industrial plants and utilities to universities and medical hospitals. Add to complication is the number of expats working in government but are actually employed privately and were only supplied to government institutions - like cleaners, clerks, medical staff, technicians, maintenance and so on. Currently, there are no clear plans laid out on how the Saudi government will implement this part of their plan, apart from the National Transformation Program 2020, which you can see here. What is clear is that Saudi Arabia is in a midst of an epic transformation which started with the crash of oil prices a few years ago. Guided by the program Vision 2030, the kingdom aims to change its course, focusing on developing its economy to be less dependent on its once vast oil reserves and the huge oil revenue it brings in annually.  Expats have seen a lot of changes directly affecting their lives - from increased costs of gasoline, electricity and water, to new or increased levies imposed on expats and their dependents. News of expat taxes and remittance taxes also abound. But of all the news coming from the Saudi government, this one is sure to spell the end for thousands of OFWs in KSA.
