In what is seen as a breakthrough, the Public Authority for Manpower is in the process of breaking the deadlock by preparing a new draft decision regarding the renewal of work permits for non-graduate 60-year-olds working in the country.

Informed sources told Al-Qabas: “The new draft decision will be presented to the upcoming meeting of the Board of Directors of the Public Authority for Manpower, headed by Minister of Justice and Minister of State for Integrity Promotion Jamal Al-Jalawi.”

The sources revealed the new draft of the upcoming decision includes setting a fee of 250 dinars to renew the work permit, in addition to health insurance.

The sources pointed out that the mentioned fee is less than what was agreed upon by the Board of Directors at its last meeting headed by former Minister of Commerce Abdullah Al-Salman which was set at 500 dinars for permission to work other than private health insurance.

The sourced also stated that the draft of the new decision will be presented to the members of the Board of Directors for a vote before circulating the document to work departments for implementation.

The sources stressed the information systems at PAM are ready to implement any new version of the decision immediately.

In anticipation of the amendment and approval of Minister Al-Jalawi for the final version of the decision, the Ministry of Interior is still providing facilities for extending or changing residence permits for this category of residents.
