Saudi women no longer require permission from male guardians to start their business

 

 

As Saudi Arabia continue its efforts to increase revenue from private along with a number of other reforms, Saudi women can now rejoice at the news that they no longer need permission from a male guardian to own or run a private business.

The ministry of commerce and investment revealed,  “Women can now launch their own businesses and benefit from (governmental) e-services without having to prove consent from a guardian.”

Now Saudi women no longer are required to present proof of permission from a male “guardian”  to do any government paperwork, travel or enroll in classes. Furthermore , women will now be able to take similar advantages from the government via their businesses just like their males counterparts.

The kingdom opened 140 positions for women at airports and border crossings. Earlier this year Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ended  decades-long ban on driving, which goes into effect in June.
