|ADDIS ABABA Emre Can Deutschland Trikot , July 21 (Xinhua) -- 65,000 Ethiopians have returned back home so far as Saudi Arabia amnesty deadline for undocumented foreign migrants to leave nears.
Speaking to Xinhua on Friday Meles Alem Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson says with the extended Saudi amnesty deadline expected to expire on July 23 the Ethiopian government is ramping up efforts to repatriate stranded Ethiopians who want to return from Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia announced in March 2017 a three months amnesty program for undocumented foreign migrants to voluntarily leave the country before the amnesty's expiration in late June.
However, Saudi Arabia gave a one month extension to provide more time to undocumented foreign migrants to voluntarily return back to their home countries.
Alem says another 65,000 undocumented Ethiopians still living in Saudi Arabia have registered in Ethiopian diplomatic missions in Saudi Arabia in order to return home.
There are no exact figures on the number of Ethiopians illegally living in Saudi Arabia but some estimates put the number closer to 400,000 engaged jobs ranging from maids to construction sites.
With a growing population currently at around 30 million and a squeeze in international oil price, Saudi Arabia is on a drive to indigenize its work force currently dominated by millions of illegal and legal migrants.
The approaching deadline recalled painful memories of Ethiopians in the last deportation debacle in November 2013 when a deportation round by Saudi authorities on illegal migrants left many Ethiopians in Saudi detention camps and returned home penniless.
The Ethiopian government has already dispatched a dozen diplomats in its embassy in Riyadh and consular offices in other Saudi cities to give consular advice to stranded Ethiopians.
With an eye to curb illegal migration, the Ethiopian government in May signed an agreement with the Saudi Arabia government for an overseas employment agreement to help future legal Ethiopian migrants.
It has also put advertorials in Ethiopian electronic media urging relatives of Ethiopians illegally residing in Saudi Arabia to persuade them to return ahead of the expiry of the Amnesty deadline.
