Even if it is a multiple business visit visa, they cannot renew their visa anymore. All those reported to be Hurub are Malayalis. This is once again a reminder to understand the type of visa and information about the company before going to foreign countries. The seriousness of the incident is increased by the fact that none of the 150 people were crossing the sea on the visas they got without proper investigation.
So many people landed in Jeddah and Riyadh on behalf of a company in Jeddah. All of them got their visa last month through an agent in Kerala. After a week after arriving in Saudi, a few people were ready to go back after realizing the fraud. He came to know about Hurubaya (run away) when he reached the airport. It was also clear that he could not go except through prison because he was a huruba when he contacted Jawasat.
Company owners in Jeddah say that they do not know about recruiting workers. It is reported that agents have taken business visas without the knowledge of the company owner. Once a person arrives in Saudi Arabia on a visit visa, that information is immediately transferred to the sponsoring company’s electronic system. The company decided to deport all those who delivered without notifying the owner.
A few have already returned through the deportation centre. They were sent back by imposing an entry ban. The social workers involved in the matter are taking necessary steps to send others back home.
A Malayali agent issued visas to all. He is said to have obtained business visas in the name of a low-cost company from a North Indian visa agent. Social workers point out that knowing the information about their sponsors from agents can help them avoid falling into such pitfalls.
