The total Indian population count in Saudi Arabia back in 2000 was more than 1,500,000, which constitutes seven percent of total Indian population. Report shows that, people who work in Saudi Arabia send $7,621 million to their home as a remittance.

Apart for that, in fresh trouble for Indians in Saudi Arabia, the authorities in Saudi Arabia have refused to accept new passports issued by Indian diplomatic missions.
