According to Al-Shahed daily, draft resolution in this regard is expected to be submitted to the Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and Minister of Planning and Development Hind Al- Subaih before the end of this month. The resolution also forbids the employee to leave the country without obtaining the approval of the sponsor and written travel permit from the Authority, the report adds.

The worker who wishes to travel shall apply through the competent department, through the sponsor or the authorized signatory or mandoub.

The sources affirmed the complaints on travel permits shall be of urgent nature and will allow the worker to travel within 24 hours, particularly in emergency situations.
