Can Kafeel blacklist an expat?
The power to blacklist an expat lies only with the Ministry of Interior. The Kafeel can neither request the MOI nor has the authority to blacklist an expat employee himself.
However, if an employee is involved in fraudulent activity and the employer reports it and the court issues an order against the expat employee, the MOI will blacklist the expat from entering back to Saudi Arabia.
