750,000 children to get residency permits
By Jeddah: Arab News | Arab News – 13 hours ago
Demands made by hundreds of Saudi women married to non-Saudis for benefits have finally yielded a positive outcome.
According to a newly approved regulation issued by the Council of Ministers, children of mixed marriages between Saudis and other nationalities have the right to education, work opportunities, medical treatment and are to be treated as Saudis in the Nitaqat system.
The regulation, entitled "Organizing the marriage of Saudis to non-Saudis" has allowed 750,000 children born to Saudi mothers and non-Saudi fathers to be sponsored by their mothers and receive legal residency permits.
Mohammad Abdullah Al-Awas, general manager of Civil Status in the Eastern Province, said the new regulations clearly stipulate that the marriage contract must be approved and endorsed by local entities and that their children should possess personal identity documents.
"The state gave these rights to all Saudi women and it will bear the costs of their children's residency fees," asserted Al-Awas.
He confirmed that the children of Saudi women would be treated as Saudi citizens when it comes to education, medical treatment and Saudization laws.
Al-Awas explained further that "Saudi women have the right to bring their foreign husbands into the country and transfer their sponsorships to them," adding that their husbands will even be allowed to work in the private sector under the special category entitled "Husband of a Saudi citizen" written on their residency cards, given that they have a valid passport.
"The objective of this step is to ensure the reunion, security and stability of Saudi families," he said.
Meanwhile, other legal entities are studying the possibility of imposing fines on violators of this regulation amounting to SR 100,000, which will be allocated to charity organizations dedicated to assisting young Saudis to cover their marriage costs.


Thanks & Best Regards,
Saudi Arabia
