GOSI: Employers can proactively register non-Saudi workers’ data
The General Organization for Social Insurance (GOSI) stated that employers are proactively provided with the registration service for non-Saudi workers as soon as they enter the Kingdom. This is through data exchanges with the relevant government agencies.
The organization emphasized that employers must take the initiative to complete the registration procedures by entering the data of actual wages or salaries through electronic services.
GOSI stated that registration of the expatriate contributor on the basis of the actual wage would be instrumental in safeguarding the rights of both parties to the contractual relationship, namely the contributor and the employer, in accordance with the correct wage agreed upon between the two parties.
In the event that the employer does not complete the procedures and fails to determine the actual wage, the system will automatically determine the contributor’s wage according to the average wage approved for establishments starting from Feb. 1, 2023, the organization said in a statement, carried by the Saudi Press Agency.
According to the GOSI statement, employers can complete the procedures through the “My Business Insurance” platform by logging into the establishment’s account and submitting the application after completing the transaction electronically.
The organization emphasized that its request to employers to take the initiative to complete the registration data for non-Saudi subscribers comes out of its keenness to register subscribers according to the actual wages to preserve the rights of subscribers and employers.
This also aims to ensure the accuracy of the actual wage data registered in GOSI’s systems to enjoy the benefits and insurance protection.
It is noteworthy that GOSI provided an advanced package of electronic services that enabled customers, including employers, subscribers, and retirees, to implement all services through the electronic service channels provided by GOSI such as its website, the ‘instant chat,’ and the ‘virtual visit’ service.
This enables the customer to meet customer service representative and communicates with him virtually, submitting applications and documents, and completing his transactions electronically in an advanced digital environment featuring the highest standards of security and reliability.
