What is the money transfer limit from Saudi Arabia?

  1. Transfer limit on White Money

There is no money transfer limit or maximum amount you can transfer from Saudi Arabia to India, Pakistan, or any other country as long as you have “white money” and it is sent through a legal banking channel.

White money pertains to the money earned from legal business activity. For example, if you are working as an employee and earning a salary of SR 10,000/month and you have worked in Saudi Arabia for 12 months, SR 120,000 is the white money.

  1. Transfer Limit on Black Money

A problem arises with those businessmen who have been conducting business in Saudi Arabia in the name of some sponsors. These businessmen actually own the business but legally sponsor is the owner of the business.

Just to fulfill the requirements of the Jawazat and Labor office, they sign a contract that they are employees and have been receiving a minimal amount as salary e.g. SR 10,000/month.

Let’s say, a businessman is earning SR 100,000/month and wants to transfer this money from his bank account to his home country. As we have seen in the above example, his money transfer limit, or the maximum amount you can transfer from Saudi Arabia cannot be more than 10,000/month.

If he tries to transfer money of more than 10,000 a month, he will be soon detected and caught by authorities since his total legal income is only SR 10,000, how can he transfer SR 100,000 per month?
