"Scarring" usually means to a radiologist that there is something in your lungs that has been there for a long time and is probably due to prior infection (sometimes you may not even know about it) - can be caused by a pneumonia or bad bronchitis for example.  

I do not know the criteria to pass for work in KSA -- not familiar myself but consider asking your doctor who may know better.  Hope this helps.  Best regards,
GC
