MANILA, Philippines – At least 150,000 Filipino nurses in Saudi Arabia might lose their jobs after the labor localization policy, known as Nitaqat, enters a new phase, according to a migrant workers' rights group.

Migrante-Middle East regional coordinator John Monterona said Saudi’s Ministry of Health (MoH) has already announced a plan to localize nursing jobs in all its medical facilities.

Reports said Saudi’s MoH issued a circular to all its administrative units indicating that employment contracts with foreign nurses, who have already worked for 10 years, will be terminated to give way to the employment of newly graduate Saudi nurses.

“Though it is a bad news to our Filipino nurses, we are quite certain that Saudi’s MoH plan of replacing 10-year in-service foreign nurses is in line of the Nitaqat that entered its new phase of implementation,” Monterona said.

Last week, Saudi’s Ministry of Labor had announced that the Nitaqat enters new phase of implementation last Saturday, September 10.

Monterona said the replacement of foreign nurses by local Saudi nurses will not be abrupt, termination is already occurring in government-run hospitals and clinics.
