How do dependents fees for expats decided?
Each foreigner who has family living in Saudi Arabia is required to pay the dependant fee. Here is a dependent fee calculator for expats that will assist you in determining your dependent fee obligation in accordance with the Saudi Arabian regulations.
Determine the dependent fee
SR 100 every month from July 2017 to June 2018; SR 200 per month from July 2018 to June 2019.
• SR 300 per month from July 2019 to June 2020.
• SR 400 per month from July 2020 to June 2021.
• After June 2021, the dependent cost will be SR 400 per month.
Some individuals believe there won’t be a dependant charge after 2022 or 2023, but this is untrue. No such notification has been made by the Saudi Arabian government.
figure shows an example

You must pay the dependant cost for 12 Hijri months if your Iqama Expiry Date is March 31, 2020; 3 months at SR 300/month = SR 900.
• SR 3,500 for 8 months and 20 days at SR 400 each month.
12 Hiiri months are equivalent to eleven months and twenty days in Gregorian months.
The following result would be produced by entering the aforementioned information into the expat dependant fee calculator provided above.


The dependant fee is not required of the following 7 categories of expatriates.

  1. Workers in government.
  2. Household employees.
  3. Offspring of a Saudi father or mother who are not Saudi.
  4. The Saudi man’s widow.
  5. A Saudi spouse’s husband or wife.
  6. International students on a student visa.
  7. Parents of Saudi children who are not Saudi.
