JEDDAH — More than 2,500 work visas issued to Saudi families to recruit housemaids from Uganda are on hold after the country’s government stopped sending domestic workers to the Kingdom about 45 days ago citing a number of reasons, according to sources in local manpower recruitment agencies.
The sources, quoted by Al-Madina Arabic newspaper, said there were mainly four factors that impeded the arrival of Ugandan housemaids to the Kingdom, including the inability to access the Ministry of Labor and Social Development’s Musanid app from Kampala, the Ugandan capital.
The ministry introduced the new smartphone app to facilitate the recruitment of housemaids from abroad in early 2017.
