The Ministry of Labor and Social Development (MLSD) once again reminded employers of domestic workers to issue prepaid salary cards for their workers as soon as they enter the Kingdom. The ministry also called on employers who already have domestic workers under their sponsorship in the Kingdom to issue salary cards within 6 months.

With the introduction of prepaid payroll card, the ministry’s wage protection system intends to protect the rights of all parties involved in the contract – both employers and domestic workers – and electronically document employment contracts for these workers, said Khalid Aba AL-Khail, the ministry’s official spokesman.

The program will ensure that wages are transferred to the worker’s bank account and hence increase job security, improve work atmosphere and promote principles of human rights for domestic workers.

Employers can issue prepaid payroll card by registering for the service at a bank, followed by creating an electronic recruitment contract specifying the worker’s monthly salary at Musaned online portal ( Once the details are filled up, employers should save the contract on the website before taking a print out.

The ministry urged recruitment offices and companies to raise awareness about the same to their clients and domestic workers, and any violations can be reported by calling the customer care center at 19911.
