New hurdle for fresh migrants

Around 25,000 aspiring migrant workers are facing new hassles as Saudi Arabia asked them to resubmit documents for reissuing their visas, expired amid coronavirus pandemic. 

Potential migrants who secured visas before the pandemic but could not travel because of the outbreak will again have to submit the medical reports and “police clearance” certificates along with fresh papers provided by their prospective Saudi employers, said industry insiders.

But a large number of the aspirants, who have already invested borrowed or hard-earned money for “lucrative” overseas jobs and facing financial crunch due to the Covid-19 fallout, now find it difficult to fulfil these requirements.
