DAMMAM – National recruitment offices have blamed the Bangladesh Ministry of Labor for delaying the processing of over 3,000 visas for housemaids already stamped by the Saudi Embassy in Dhaka.

Sources at recruitment offices in the Eastern Province said the Bangladesh Ministry of Labor is deliberately delaying the visa processing for housemaids because it is reportedly waiting for the beginning of recruitment of male Bangladeshi workers.

The sources said the Bangladeshi government is putting a condition that the issuance of visas for male workers should start before activating the agreement signed with the Kingdom on domestic workers.

The sources said the visas that are yet to be stamped by the Saudi embassy for the recruitment of Bangladeshi domestic workers exceed 30,000.
