In an effort to reduce the number of marginal workers in the country, and in line with consistent calls to fix the demographic imbalance,

the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) has decided to stop the renewal of article-18 work permits for low-cadre expatriate employees of the private sector who are above the age of 60 years, reports Al-Seyassah daily.


According to informed sources, those holding high educational degrees will not be affected by the decision.

This includes doctors, engineers, journalists, legal consultants, specialists, executive directors, private company partners, and many others who specialize in various fields.

They will be exempted based on their effects in the labor market.

The workers considered to be affected by this decision will be mainly clerical staff, drivers, and mandoubs (company representatives), under the belief that those who are younger than 60 years will be more active.
