The Saudi Premium Residency Center is taking a new move to allow Premium Residency holders to benefit from education and health services.
(Special Privilege Iqama) holders will soon enjoy the exclusive rights of health and education sectors the same as Saudi citizens.
The Saudi Premium Residency Center (PRC) plans to make new amendments in the Premium Residency Law in this regard, Al-Watan newspaper reported.
The new amendments aim to allow non-Saudis from non-target groups to obtain Premium Residency benefits.
Currently, the target groups for obtaining the new green card-style Premium Residency include those who have exceptional competence and talent as well as investors, entrepreneurs, property owners, and other proposed target groups.
As per the new amendments, The Saudi Premium Residency Center seeks to grant exemptions, enjoyed hitherto by Saudis concerning health and education services, to the Premium Residency holders.
The new move stands to achieve the Kingdom’s goals and vision by granting non-Saudis some privileges and special status over other residents in the Kingdom.
What distinguishes the Premium Residency is that its holders do not require a Saudi sponsor or employer.
