Riyadh: Saudi Arabian government will provide green card only to foreign investors and highly qualified experts among expats.
The Kingdom expects to reap economic benefits generated by experts in the expat community.
“The new system will be similar to the US residence model. The Saudi government is interested in taking advantage of foreign investors and extraordinary expats,” Arab News quoted Fahd bin Jumaa, vice president of Economic Committee at the consultative body as saying.
The green card will also allow foreigners to own property and undertake business activities in the gulf kingdom.
Saudi Arabia is home to over 10 million foreign workers.
