Question
my uncle is obtaining a family visa and his son is above 18 can his son is allowed to work under his fathers family visa for KSA

Answer
You need a real visa expert for this question, I'm just guessing.

When our Secondary School kids turn 18, they are on their own.  The company stops paying for plane tickets for them and visa costs.

They have to get their own Iqama's which has printed on them in big red letters, "Not A Work VISA"

The answer legally, I suspect, is no.

Expertise

All kinds of issues dealing with children transitioning to Saudi Arabia (specifically Yanbu and Jubail). This is particularly the case if your moving from the US. Can I find special ed. services in Yanbu? How do my child's High School credits transfer from or to an American or Canadian school? What kinds of activities are available either independently our through schools in the Yanbu/Jubail area? What are the schools like in Yanbu and Jubail?

Experience

My wife and I have spent the last four years in Saudi, three years in Jubail and one in Yanbu. We both work for the International Schools Group. I'm a counselor/vice-principal and my wife is a teacher. We've worked abroad now for 8 years, spending four years in Taskent, Uzbekistan before coming here. However, as I'm part of ISG, I have access to a vast range of experiences and knowledge. ISG has several hundred employees in seven campuses, if I don't know the answer about something educational, I can find somebody who does.
