Any objections to Saher fine? Record online!

The Interior Ministry has launched a new online service that will allow citizens and expatriates to check if they have fines recorded under the Saher system and raise objections if they have any.
The ministry said objections must be in line with specific requirements and guidelines, including that the person lodging the appeal should be registered on its website. In addition, objections should be filed within 30 days of the date of the traffic offense.
Objections are limited to those violations recorded by the Saher system. Penalties for violations should be paid after submitting an objection to avoid the amount of the fine increasing.
It is not permissible to file objections to traffic offenses recorded before the launch of the new service, and only one objection may be filed per violation, the ministry was quoted as saying in a report on Tuesday.
The ministry said that individuals wishing to file objections could also visit the main offices of the General Directorate of Traffic in the Kingdom for information to register their complaints.
All objections would be reviewed in accordance with the rules and regulations of the General Directorate of Traffic issued by royal decree eight years ago.
Drivers must visit the site and they can find the relevant section under “Public Query Traffic Violation and Objection Claim.” They must fill in their identity and fine numbers.

Jeddah Season provides seasonal employment for young Saudis

JEDDAH: The Jeddah Season festival has provided a wide range of seasonal employment opportunities for young Saudi men and women, helping them gain experience and prepare them to enter the job market.

More than 5,000 young Saudis are working around the clock, each in his or her field, to manage the festival’s activities.

The festival aims to highlight development opportunities in Saudi Arabia, introduce the Kingdom as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, support the government’s efforts to empower Saudi youths, support local small and medium enterprises, develop Jeddah’s tourism sector and provide volunteer opportunities.

Jeddah Season, which began on June 8 and runs until July 18, has attracted thousands of visitors of all ages through its 150 local and international events and activities.

It is being held at five sites: King Abdullah Sports City, Al-Hamra Corniche, the Jeddah Waterfront, Obhur and Historic Jeddah (Al-Balad), which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Jeddah Season offers a wide range of tourism, entertainment and cultural events and activities, and sheds light on the city’s status as the Kingdom’s tourism capital. Most of its events are being held for the first time in Saudi Arabia.

Jeddah Season is in line with the Vision 2030 reform plan, which aims to advance the welfare of Saudi society, diversify local development opportunities, improve the Kingdom’s contribution to arts and culture, and create job opportunities for Saudi youths.
