Saudi Arabia to cover government fees for displaced citizens from neighbouring countries

Jeddah: Saudi Arabia announced a significant decision to waive government fees for displaced citizens from neighbouring countries, allowing them to rectify their status in the Kingdom.

The Council of Ministers, chaired by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, approved the exemption of government fees for a period of four years. This includes various fees such as residency (iqama) permits, work permits and profession change fees.

Further, the state will also bear previously incurred fees and fines related to violations of the Residency Law for both the individuals and their companions.

This decision was taken by the weekly session of the Council of Ministers, chaired by Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed bin Salman, in Jeddah on Tuesday.

In addition to the fee exemption, the council also made amendments to the Traffic Law and the Ministry of Education was entrusted with the application of provisions concerning Municipal Real Estate Regulation.

The Crown Prince expressed gratitude for the successful hosting of millions of Umrah pilgrims during Ramadan, attributing the achievement to God's grace and the leadership of King Salman. He also commended government agencies for their efforts.

Discussions also included strengthening bilateral relations with Ethiopia and fostering cooperation with various countries to achieve regional stability and prosperity.

The Cabinet praised the launch of the Vision for Regional Security of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Saudi Arabia's selection to chair the UN Commission on the Status of Women in 2025.

Domestically, the government reaffirmed its commitment to comprehensive development, job creation and the preservation of historical sites. Efforts to reduce unemployment among Saudis have yielded positive results.

Several memoranda of understanding (MoUs) were approved to enhance cooperation in various fields with countries such as San Marino, Serbia and Barbados.
