Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (HRSD) has issued a circular to all recruitment offices requiring the vaccination of all their staff who practice the activity of recruiting domestic workers against the Covid-19.

The Ministry asked the vaccination processes to start from May 13, 2021, or to obtain a negative PCR test every (7) days at the expense of the employer for workers in these activities who are not vaccinated.

This step reflects the Kingdom’s keenness of the health of citizens and residents and comes in light of the developments of the pandemic locally and regionally.
