Few days after it expires, the Jawazat has started their crackdown to apprehend and punished undocumented workers.

With this the Saudi government has promulgated an instruction “to carry out the implementation of the comprehensive national campaign to chase and arrest the violators of the residence permit (i.e. iqama), work and border security regulations” after the amnesty deadline.

A massive crackdown campaign in which 19 government departments will participate will soon start to apprehend violators.







Al-Yahya said these are reckless people who have no respect for the law and should be penalized since amnesty was an opportunity for the violators to leave voluntarily.

They can also come back to the Kingdom legally.

Base on their records, there are more than 600,000 violators that have benefited the Amnesty Program and already left Saudi Arabia.

He warned that those who completed their departure procedures during the amnesty period but remained in the Kingdom will be fined and deported.



Meanwhile, the Department of Labor and Employment said it has yet to receive reports of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) affected by the Saudi governments on going crackdown against illegal migrant workers.

According to Labor Undersecretary Dominador Say, no OFW has been affected yed and they are closely monitoring the situation.

Under Saudi's amnesty program, DOLE was able to repatriate around 7,000 OFWs.
