Saudi Arabia: Saudi Council to discuss children of non-Saudi mothers
Ministries of Interior and Foreign Affairs are working jointly with National Human Rights Commission in the Kingdom to find an acceptable solution to this problem.
“We receive many complaints from Saudi families abroad; but most of them need more time in order to formulate documents and other official papers,” said Mufleh Al-Kahtani, a senior National Human Rights Commission official.
Some families have their official papers but are clueless about their rights and procedures. “Many people who come to us are not aware about the procedure to be followed and which department is to be approached.
Although they have all their official papers, they are confused,” Al-Kahtani said.
