KSA to grant citizenship to ‘innovative’ foreigners

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdul Aziz issued the decree to grant citizenship to foreigners in fields such as medicine and technology.

According to media reports, Saudi Arabia has been approved to give Saudi Arabia citizenship in order to strengthen their economic prosperity.

Saudi Project, KSA government platform, posted on Twitter “The kingdom aims to attract “scientists, intellectuals and innovators from around the world, to enable the kingdom to become a diverse hub … that the Arab world would be proud of.”

The changes are part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s economic and social reform plans to steer the economy away from its reliance on oil.

Remember that Yemeni immigrants residing in the country will also be given Saudi citizenship. On the other hand, the royal family physician in Jeddah, Leila Hilali, said that King Salman’s decree was a positive step that would strengthen the kingdom.
