Once there was a time when KSA was the heaven of Expatriates. Poor labors or skilled people were happy because they were getting nice income upon their hard work.

But now the situation is different, Saudi Govt is increasing prices of iqama every year. Every company needs to hire a significant number of Saudi people.

In this situation, it is tough for expatriates to survive in KSA. But sponsors and Govt don’t think about Expats. They only want to give facilities to Saudi citizens.

There are no rights for Expats, The inflation rate is high, and prices are going up every year.
