Saudi Arabia: Job Advert Period Extended to 45 Days

Latest Update on The Extended Job Advert Period in Saudi Arabia

With immediate effect, the Ministry of Labour and Social Development of Saudi Arabia have confirmed an extension for jobs advertised on the Taqat Gateway. Jobs must now be posted on the portal for a period of 45 days instead of the previous duration of 14 days.

The new labor portal and database, Taqaat, was introduced on 1st August 2016. The portal requires employers to advertise job roles on the portal before applying for new block visas. The new requirement has been put into action to ensure there are no suitable local Saudi nationals who could fit and apply for the role. Employers must also provide evidence of efforts to employ local applicants before applying for the block visa application.
