RIYADH — Bangladeshi domestic workers will arrive in the Kingdom next month.

Ghulam Masseh, the Bangladeshi ambassador to the Kingdom, said the first batch of domestic help is expected to arrive in the Kingdom within one month. Speaking to Al-Madinah daily, he said the Bangladeshi embassy has been receiving as many as 17,000 queries a week about the date of arrival of Bangladeshis laborers, who will work in the contracting and construction sectors.

The Ministry of Labor started receiving applications to issue visas for Bangladeshi domestic workers from April 20. According to the ministry, Saudis who want to hire housemaids can choose any of the 337 licensed recruitment firms, which will facilitate the hiring process with their counterparts in Bangladesh. The costs, visa validity and other details are available on the ministry’s Musaned electronic portal.
