Saudi may start recruiting Indian maids
Riyadh, August 13, 2014
Saudi recruitment agencies are hopeful that they will be able to recruit Indian housemaids within three months to meet the acute shortage of domestic help in the Kingdom, a report said.
The delay was caused due to plans being made by Indian companies to train workers, the Arab News report quoted Mohsin Al-Omairy, vice chairman of the National Recruitment Committee, as saying. “Our companies are ready to recruit maids and most of them have got their visas,” he said.
Officials, meanwhile, said Saudi Arabia is planning to recruit domestic helps from Nepal but the country insists that Riyadh should sign two separate agreements for maids and other workers, the report said.
A Saudi team is expected to visit Kathmandu next month to reach an agreement on the issue, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
