Brother wants to work in Jeddah

Hi,

I have several questions about getting a visa and working here in KSA.

My husband's brother would like to come and work in saudi from the Philippines, making my husband as his sponsor.

Question1: Would it be easier if he comes through a visit visa than permanent/residence visa?

Question2: If he comes as a visit visa, would he be able to find a job easily? He works as a businness develeopment manager/sales manager, cannott speak arabic only english.

Question3: what medical requirements are needed for him to get an iqama?

Thanks in advance for the answers.

Answer of question 3, in a visit visa it's very difficult and unlawful to find a job

Answer: Visiting Visa does not allow you to work.

Question3: what medical requirements are needed for him to get an iqama?
Answer: He will have to make a check up in a governmental hospital or a clinic approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

its better if you find him a sponsor who is willing to send him a visa.

Thanks for your replies. Just a follow up question, my sister can come to visit but my brother is prohibited? Why?
