Yemen: Yemeni Migrants Returned From Saudi Arabia Through the Border Crossing Point of Al Tuwal, Hajjah

Following the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) efforts to restructure the domestic labor market, the changes to the Nitaqat system were put in force as of March 2013. This has led to massive returns of foreign migrant workers in the past few months. Most affected is Yemen, due to the immediate land border with KSA, which makes returns easier to effect. Most Yemeni migrants are returned through the Border Crossing Point (BCP) of Al Tuwal, approximately 10km north of Haradh in Hajjah Governorate.
