New rules to be implemented soon to issue visa for expatriates

Latest News

The ministry of social affairs and labor will soon lay down new rules for issuance of work permits to expatriate workers in accordance with the actual manpower needs of the country, local daily Arab Times reported citing Al Seyassah.

Under the new rule, the expatriate workers will be subjected to a series of test to determine their competency level. They should also submit certificate providing they are fit to work in Kuwait, daily reported.

The ministry is currently studying the possibility of establishing a government office for the recruitment of the expatriate workers to ensure the qualification of those who will be hired match the actual need of the companies or institutions, daily added.

The contract between the office and the employer will include criteria for recruitment such as the field of specialization and years of work experience, in addition to the salary.

Work permit will be issued to the expatriate who hold certificate in the required field of specialization and technical skill as stated by the ministerial decision, daily added.

Sources said the above mentioned steps are aimed at limiting the marginal workers and create more job opportunity for the citizens.

If the government will decide to give EQUAL SALARY FOR EQUAL JOBS. According to my experience in Kuwait, there is no equality in job sector. Same job with different salary scale.

Great to know that the poor educated expatriate job seeker will have to go through another round of scrutiny which will ensure whether he is fit for the job. But a question??? Will this ensure equality for work, pay and other perks which is with his Kuwaiti compatriot in the government, semi-government and private sectors? The Government of Kuwait should ensure that bogus firms are uprooted and rules & regulations are equal for both the expatriate and the national. Hope the new system will bring some equality and mutual respect at work and pay. God bless Kuwait.
