Due to the lack of a clearly defined automatic procedure, these files were ultimately closed. However, considering the humanitarian circumstances, it has been decided to allow the transfer of these workers. The condition is that their files must be “cleared” of workers by July this year.
Regulations and conditions will govern the transfer process. Notably, the transfer will only be permitted to valid files with other companies, reports Al Jarida. Additionally, workers will be allowed to transfer from one file to another if more than 12 months have passed since their work permit was issued by the closed/suspended company.
For workers employed by companies holding licenses for small and medium enterprises, it is emphasized that a minimum of 3 years must elapse from the issuance of the work permit as a requirement for transferring their employment. The final decision to accept or reject the transfer will be made accordingly.
As a result of the suspension of companies, the Public Authority for Manpower has taken measures to address the circumstances faced by expatriate workers. Transferring them to other companies takes into account their individual situations and the necessity of ensuring their welfare.
