For the first time, women in Saudi Arabia will be allowed to work as notaries, with 12 women granted permission licenses.


This new major shift in the Kingdom comes less than a month after the driving ban on women was officially lifted and female drivers could take to the road. The ministry confirmed that under these new notary roles, women will be able to transfer property rights, cancel powers of attorney and certify documents to help establish companies.




This is another step in the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s initiative to modernise the Kingdom and push his 2030 vision to make Saudi society more open.
