JEDDAH — The recruitment companies and offices in Saudi Arabia are geared up to resume hiring of domestic workers from Ethiopia in the near future.

The Federation of Saudi Chambers (FSC) has sent a circular in this regard to all chambers of commerce and industry in the Kingdom on the basis of a directive from the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development.

The ministry directed the FSC that an urgent circular shall be sent to the Saudi recruitment firms asking them to communicate with employment offices and agencies in Ethiopia to activate their accounts with the Saudi embassy there in order to expedite the launch of the recruitment process from Ethiopia.

The federation urged the stakeholders and officials of the recruitment companies and offices to initiate contact with the Ethiopian offices with regard to the resumption of the recruitment procedures. The ministry’s directive paves the way for the resumption of the recruitment of workers from Ethiopia after a hiatus of three years.

During the past period, Ethiopia was removed from the ministry’s Musaned electronic platform, which is handling the hiring of domestic workers from various countries. The ministry had also halted the visa issuance procedures from the African country.
