Need to take permission from sponsor before travel

January 16, 20160 Comments

Ministry of Interior is studying the possibility of allowing expatriates to leave the country only after obtaining the approval of their sponsors, security sources say.

This decision would apply on expatriate workers in the private sector, as the expatriates who are working in the government sector currently require an approved exit permit from the authority where they are working before leaving the country. Therefore, this will equalize the expatriates working in the private and public sectors.

The exit form, which will be approved by the Ministry of Interior, should carry the sponsor’s signature and seal of the company or establishment where the expatriate works. The expatriate should submit this along with a copy of company’s specimen signature, which is for ascertaining the sponsor’s signature, in order to leave the country.

The reason for departure should also be mentioned in the form. Sources revealed that the mechanism of applying this decision will be similar to that followed in other GCC countries. Informed sources from the Manpower Public Authority said, “Following the implementation of this decision, expatriate workers will not be able to leave the country without the permission of their sponsors”.
