Saudi Arabia Instructs Businesses to Update Branch Location Details

The Saudi Arabia Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD) has urged all private sector businesses to update the location data of their branches through the “establishment location management” service available through the Qiwa platform.

The “establishment location management” service allows establishments to digitally link their workers to the locations where they actually work.

The Ministry set a specific deadline for the completion of the update process. Businesses with 20 or fewer workers must complete the update by May 30, 2024, while the deadline for establishments with 21 to 49 workers expires on June 30, 2024, and for establishments with 50 or more workers on July 30, 2024.
