Upper Age Limit for job in Gulf countries

Can someone answer my query about upper age limit for job.
I see many advertisements to get new job in Gulf but there will be no mention of age limit.
Is there any upper age limit for expats willing to get full-time job in Qatar, UAE or KSA?
Please guide me. Thanks in advance.


Age is never an issue , you can be 60+ and still work in Saudi and Bahrain , as far I've seen , my dad was 63 when he retired and was forced to as he was in the Govt Sector .

But private sector , no age limit .

Thank you very much, Sir.
Your reply is encouraging me to apply for re-employment in your country after I retired from government job in India at the age of 60 yrs.
With kind regards.

Hello Vindran,

Welcome to expat.com!

Kindly note that none of our members will be able to arrange a job for you. You will need to do that on your own.

You can read the Living in Qatar guide for expats for a start. You will get many articles that are dedicated to visas and employment in Qatar.

All the best,
