More than 200,000 foreigners staying illegally in the Kingdom were deported during the first four months of the current Hijra year, official figures have said.
According to the General Directorate for Passports, 201,350 foreigners who were not properly documented were deported during the period, local media reported Tuesday.
The deportees included people who were smuggled into the Kingdom and expatriates who did not regularize their stay or were not allowed to extend their stay.
A security check to ensure there were no pending cases was performed before the deportees were cleared to leave the country, a statement from the department added.
Officials this week reported that 106,696 foreigners, mainly Yemenis, were apprehended as they were trying to infiltrate Saudi Arabia in the last four months.
All companies and establishments as well as Saudi citizens and residents have been warned against hosting, accommodating or employing foreigners without proper documents, the directorate said.
All those who become aware of irregular situations should report them, it said.
Saudi Arabia is home to around 10 million foreigners, mainly Asians working in the construction and service sectors. Many of the expatriates have been working in the Kingdom for several years, but a drive by the authorities to curb reliance on foreigners is set to reduce their presence by at least three million

These are both reasonable steps that governments can and should take to protect their laws, their citizens, and their nationl identity. Israel has been taking similar steps. Only Western nations cower in fear at being called “racist” for taking logical and prudent immigration stances.
OOh those Saudis are so brave. much braver than we can ever be. That’s what Rand Paul is saying.
So... the Obama administration is saying that the Saudis can manage this no sweat, but somehow American ingenuity can’t quite solve the problem....?
Or is it the case that the Democrats don’t want to evict a huge Democrat voting bloc - even if it IS illegal?
WHAT A CONCEPT!
10 million foreigners?!!!! There’s only 18 million Saudi’s. (granted that’s 18 million too many)But, do saudi’d do any work?
You'd never get a Saudi to pick lettuce in Yuma, AZ for $50 per hour.
If you consider spreading Wahabbism work.
For $50 bucks an hour I’ll fly over and do it...
This process has gone on for years there without success; “Saudization” was supposed to put more of the operation of the country in the hands of Saudis, but their wealth has made it impossible to get them to work. So Asians do the manual labor, while Europeans/Americans are the brains behind the utilities.
This was a critical part of why Kuwait fell in one day.
