Maximum Limit of Indian Workers Set
The Qiwa online portal of the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development has set maximum limit of workers for 4 nationalities including India.
It means that the number of workers from that particular nationality in a company cannot exceed the prescribed percentage of total workers.
The maximum limit set by Qiwa online portal is as follows:
1- Maximum Limit for Indian Workers: 40%.
2- Maximum Limit for Bangladeshi Workers: 40%.
3- Maximum Limit for Yemeni Workers: 25%.
4- Maximum Limit for Ethiopian Workers: 1%.
|Number of Allowed Indian Employees
The Qiwa portal has notified the business owners about the percentage system through emails.
What if the number is already exceeded?
The Qiwa portal has clarified that the companies who already have more than the maximum limit of workers for these nationalities can still renew the work permit and Iqama of their employees. However, they would not be able to;
1- Transfer new employees of the same nationality.
2- Issue visa for the same nationality.
Error Message In Qiwa Upon Transferring Employees
The establishments that have been trying to transfer new employees through Qiwa are receiving the following error message.
“You have exceeded the permissible limit of the number of workers for this nationality. So you can request one visa for this nationality in the event that there is no employee of this nationality with you.”
