Ajmal, 36, previously played at New Road in 2011, taking 16 wickets in eight Friends Life t20 appearances, including a triple-wicket maiden against Northants as he recorded career-best figures of 4-14.
The off-spinner, who is ranked No 1 in ODIs and No 4 in Tests having taken 389 wickets for Pakistan, also claimed 17 wickets in three County Championship matches for Worcestershire.
Director of Cricket, Steve Rhodes said: "Saeed fitted in to the dressing room fantastically well in 2011 and his experience at the highest level can only be a massive boost to our young squad.
"To sign a world class player of Saeed's quality shows the stature the Club has in the world of cricket and demonstrates the County's determination to challenge for honours in 2014."
Ajmal added: "I'm looking forward to returning to New Road for what I hope will be an extended stay. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our short time in Worcester during 2011 and I hope to be able to contribute to a successful 2014 campaign."
