The Riyadh deportation center has set new days for stranded illegal workers to record their biometric details before flying out of the Kingdom under the amnesty scheme.
The schedule is Sunday (Indians), Monday (Pakistanis) and Wednesday (Bangladeshis).
After recording their biometric details at the deportation center in Shumaisi in Riyadh, applicants will still need to wait a month to obtain exit visas from the airport.
Sources also said that passport authorities were studying the possibility of updating computer software to enable applicants to receive their final exits at the deportation center itself.
All deportation centers in the Kingdom are working at night during Ramadan with the aim of helping the workers.
