Saudi Arabia: Companies with five or less employees are exempt from expat fee.

The monthly levy on foreign national employees in Saudi companies that have more foreign than Saudi employees has doubled to SAR 400.

A levy of SAR 300 per month also applies to companies where number of foreign national employees does not exceed the amount of Saudi employees.

A monthly level of SAR 100 must also be paid for each foreign national dependent resident in Saudi Arabia.

This is followed by the Ministry of Labour and Social Development announcing that Saudi companies employing five people or fewer are exempt from the new monthly expat levy.
