The Saudi Ministry of Higher Education will start verifying higher university degree certificates of government employees, effective January 1, Saudi Gazette reported on Tuesday.
The move is aimed at stopping the misuse of fake certificates to secure jobs and promotions, the report said citing sources at the ministry.
The ministry will be soon sending circular to all government departments instructing them to submit original master’s and doctorate degree certificates of their employees for verification.
It will then verify whether the certificates are original and are from recognized universities and institutions, the report said.
