The company is currently working on internship agreements with Princess Nourah Bint Abdul Rahman University and Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University. VFS Global’s Saudization internship programs delivers opportunities across all of the organisations departments, with Operations proving to be the most in demand departments interns seek to join.

Interns are then welcomed to VFS Global with an onboarding and induction session.

By the end of the training duration, they receive a report of their achievements and developments.
