What I have noted through the years is that age is used as an excuse to get rid of either someone who has stepped on the wrong toes... or to cut salary costs (as they are usually at the top of the scale). But doesn't tend to get enforced across the board.

Of course we all know this happens in USA/Canada/Europe as well. But with unions it does not happen as often as in the Gulf. Just heard a friend who has taught ESL for a number of years was given notice in Al Ain. Funding issues apparently.

But back to my two questions....

I know plenty of people hired in Saudi Arabia from 60 to 64 years of age in spite of the claims of no one over 55 years or no one over 58 years.

If they need or want you, they will find away, most likely in Saudi, they will put you on a business visa.
