The expatriate families of Saudi Arabian women will now be able to take up residence in the country due to the relaxation of rules surrounding visas.
Those women who have married overseas will now be able to sponsor their families to come to Saudi Arabia and work as long as they do not pose any threat to national security.
The move should mean that families are granted more stability and those whose husbands have died will be able to have their children live with them.
What is more, the government will pay any sponsorship fees in a bid to encourage expats to take up the new scheme and prevent widows from feeling financial hardship as a result.
It comes after female activists in Saudi Arabia expressed concerns about their families and who cares for them after their husbands have died.
Although mainly aimed at expats from Egypt and Yemen, the new rule will also extend to westerners who marry women from the country.
