He pointed out that the three-month period was set by the Royal Decree and that some expatriates were wasting their time by going to their embassies, while others have lost their legal documents, local newspapers reported.
The granted grace period does not exclude any nationality including the Bangladeshis, Fakieh said.
He added that there were no accurate statistics regarding expatriates who have appeared at the labor office to correct their status. However the Labor and Interior Ministries will be issuing a statement to the public starting next week and every two weeks after, regarding the number of workers who have corrected their status.
Fakih: no intention to extend the period of correction .. And wasted time arrivals arriving at their embassies
