Saudi: Online registration of domestic help soon

Written by: Staff

Dubai, Aug 30: In an attempt to end the growing cases of maid abuses in Saudi Arabia, the India embassy in Riyadh will introduce an online registration of domestic help.

Indian Ambassador to Saudi Arabia MOH Farook said he has urged New Delhi to make maids' registration compulsory.

''Prospective employers of Indian maids in Saudi Arabia have been told to obtain permission from the Indian embassy in Riyadh for their recruitment,'' he said.

Mr Farook told the Federation of Kerala Associations in Saudi Arabia that the rules are that the maids should be above 40 years and offered a minimum salary of SR1,000 (local currency).

But, there are cases of violation of the contract with many of house help receiving only SR500.
