Sales jobs are to be localised in automotive showrooms, ready-to-wear clothes shops, home and office furniture stores and kitchenware shops.

Saudisation of outlets selling medical supplies and equipment, auto parts, building and construction materials, carpets, bikes and confectionery shops must be complete by January 7, 2019.

“Those who violate the decision that aims to replace foreign workers with Saudi workers in these activities will be subject to penalties mentioned in the Law,” the ministry confirmed in a statement.

That appears to rule out the possibility that the new round of Saudisation may be delayed or pared back.
