Women in Saudi Arabia are to be allowed to join the country’s Border Guards as part of the Interior Ministry’s plan to increase the number of women in government and private sector roles.

Posts in the kingdom’s military were opened to women for the first time last February, as part of the government’s Vision 2030 strategy aimed at reforming many aspects of life in the kingdom, including empowerment of women. Women will now be able to join the army, royal air defence, the navy, the royal Saudi strategic missile forces and the medical services of the armed forces.
