Saudi Arabia restarts hiring Ethiopian domestic labour

As Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Human Resources has reopened recruitment of domestic labour from Ethiopia and set the maximum cost limit at SR6,900 per worker exclusive the VAT, the Saudi news agency SPA has reported.

The resumption of recruitment from Ethiopia comes more than three years after the kingdom halted it.


The decision is the latest in a series of measures pertaining to house labour recruitment with the aim of regulating the employment market in the kingdom.

The ministry has obligated all agencies engaged in brokering domestic labour recruitment to adhere by the designated official cost cap.

The move marks continuation of the ministry’s efforts to regulate the recruitment market to ensure the quality of the provided services and improve the work environment, SPA added.

The ministry had earlier announced maximum limits for hiring overseas domestic workers from different countries.

They are set at SR9,500 per worker from Uganda, SR10,000 from Thailand, SR10,870 from Kenya, SR13,000 from Bangladesh, SR15,000 from Sri Lanka, SR17,288 from the Philippines and SR7,500 from Burundi exclusive VAT.
