Within the framework of the government’s steps taken to address the demographic imbalance in the country, the recent decisions taken by the government towards marginal employment are continuing to resolve the issue after it was proven that many of them did not comply with the rules and regulations and deliberately violated them, reports Al-Qabas daily.
Several changes have emerged recently, consistent with a series of new decisions aimed at toughening the penalties for violators of the residence law and has identified seven points where an expatriate can be deported, the latest of which was the recent decision issued by the Ministry of Interior, to reorganize the transport service which targets ‘on call’ and ‘roving’ taxis and in the event it is found the taxi driver has violated the law, the driving license is withdrawn and if the violation is repeated the driver is referred to the deportation center.
Moreover, any expatriate driving a vehicle without obtaining a driver’s license exposes himself to direct deportation through the General Traffic Department.
