30 000 pakistanis illega

The  Saudi Arabian government declared 30,000 Pakistanis as illegal immigrants on Wednesday, Pakistani media reported.

According to new regulations, any job which is other than the occupation written on visa, will be considered as illegal by the Saudi government.

Earlier this year, the  Saudi government warned that illegal immigrants risk being slapped with prison sentences and fines after a 3-month grace period that runs out on July 3.

Thousands of Pakistani nationals currently working in Saudi Arabia  are  facing problems due to the new regulations.
