A further 217 Bangladeshi workers have been sent back home from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) to Bangladesh.

With this, a total of 2,500 workers have now come back to Bangladesh within the last three weeks, amid KSA’s crackdown on undocumented workers.

The 217 workers returned to Bangladesh between last night and early today. Among them, 103 workers returned on a Saudi Arabian Airlines flight SV804 at 11:20pm last night and the other 114 returned on another Saudi Arabian Airlines flight SV802 at 1:10am today, according to the Brac Expatriates’ Welfare Desk.

Brac Migration Program, with the help of the Expatriate Welfare desk, has provided emergency services to the migrants.
