Nitaqat is a nationalization program in Saudi Arabia that requires businesses to fill their workforce to certain levels with Saudi nationals. The program categorizes private firms into Platinum, High Green, Mid Green, Low Green, and Red. Platinum has the highest percentage, followed by High Green, and so on, with Red having the lowest. The Nitaqat color or Iqama color can be checked online through the Ministry of Labor (Wazarat Amal) website.
