A Belgian national aged 64 has been recruited to work for a 2 year project.

Potential Issues

The age limit to obtain a work permit in KSA is 60 years old.

Possible solutions

A special request can be made by the host company, explaining the individual’s skills and experience, and how they are crucial to the given project. The statement should also confirm that he will leave KSA upon completion of the project. The request will be considered on a discretionary basis.
