Saudi Arabia expedited process of deporting illegal Pakistanis from Kingdom

MULTAN: 

Saudi Arabia has intensified the process of deporting illegal Pakistanis living in the Kingdom on illegal visas or on the invalid permits.

At least 130 Pakistanis were deported by the Saudi Arabian government for overstaying their visas or working without a valid work permit.

The deportees arrived at Multan International Airport via Saudi Arabian airlines on Thursday. The workers claim Saudi Binladin Group and Redico Real Estate Development and Investment failed to pay them their dues for over a year.

The workers told The Express Tribune that their situation was dire as they had not been paid for over a year by their employers and the situation was compounded by the expiry of their work permit. The companies had not renewed their two-year work permits.

Over 40,000 foreigners deported since 2012

The destitute employees were residing in Jubail RC camps as they found it hard to make both ends meet without any income. Without valid work permits, it was impossible for them to seek employment with any other firm under the kingdom’s labour laws.
