I feel instead of putting taxes on expats why not open up the country . They know oil prices are dwindling so my suggestion open up the country and allow free trades and increase tourism by being flexible in rules and regulations. Now is the correct time to open up the country for investors and bring flexibility in rules and if you dont do now you wont be able to in future because it will be too late. Take a e.g from Qatar allowing free visa at the airport. Be wise now or else suffer in future as other GCC countries are already gone far ahead of you.Even now it is not too late think wisely.
