Riyadh: Saudi Minister for Labour and Social Development, Mr. Mufraj Al-Haqbani announced that immigrant women will now be allowed to work in beauty salons in Saudi Arabia. It will reduce the issue of visas for foreigners. It may be noted that Ministry of Labour of Saudi Arabia had permitted immigrant women to work in private sector in 2014 but this permission was restricted to teaching profession only.
The other conditions are that such women should be below 60 years and they should not be working for any other company. Immigrant women will get such jobs if Saudi women are not available for such employment.
