Last week, Saudi Arabia decided to waive 2,000 riyals tax on Pakistani pilgrims performing Umrah every year. Now in yet another move, the nation has decided to provide relief in visa fee for Pakistani workers. Seemingly, Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to Saudi Arabia has resulted in significant understandings between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. According to The News, Prime Minister Imran Khan had suggested to the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman to reduce work visa fee. The request was well-received by the Crown Prince and he agreed to provide relaxation to Pakistani workers in visa fee. This initiative is a progressive step to aid the Pakistani workforce in Saudi Arabia and improves travel between both nations.
