As we all know nowadays that most of the expatriates living in Saudi Arabia are sending back their families to their hometown because they cannot afford the high dependent fee which has increased from 100 Saudi Riyal to 200 Saudi Riyal per month.
The expat workers who are living in the Kingdom with their wives and children are planning to exit the Kingdom as they could not afford the dependent fee for 2 or more dependents on their monthly salary.
However, workers living alone with their wives don’t think necessary to send them back. When most of the expat is sending families back to their hometown, this is a better chance for newlywed couples or those who do not have children yet to move to the Kingdom.
They can easily live in Saudi Arabia on a permanent visa. However, they can benefit themselves from these 4 benefits in the Kingdom at the present time.

Moreover, there is a good news that most of the houses rents are reduced by 50%. House rents were decreased after the implementation of dependent fees in the Kingdom as many expats left the Kingdom.
Most of the real estate agents are facing downfall in the real estate market and are also facing issues to find tenants who could rent the houses thus the rents have also decreased and the owners of the house are also offering their customer to pay the rent monthly, quarterly or once in a six month or once in a year.
