PLANNING TAX ON EXPAT REMITTANCE
INCREASE IN EXPAT INSURANCE
INCREASE THE SALARY CAP
INCREASE FAMILY RESIDENCY FEES
INCREASE IN CIVIL ID RENEWAL
INCREASE IN HEALTH CHARGES
ETC...ETC...
ALL THE ABOVE CHANGES ARE NOT GOING TO MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE IN EXPAT POPULATION.
ONLY MEDICAL CHECK UP IS SUFFICIENT

ALMOST FAMILIES ARE NOT COMING TO KUWAIT DUE TO MEDICAL CHECK UP IN INDIA.

Now every gulf expat medical centres are doing very stringent process. Everyone during the chest Xray is finding to have small calcification in the lungs.
These people are healthy according to doctors report. They are not harm to society. They are not disease career.
However this system makes them unfit to enter gulf and resulting in life time ban.

population reduced!

Due to this ban husband and wife cannot live together in gulf, so husband decides to leave the gulf.
Some husbands decide to leave the wives.
Population Reduced! but divorces and re marriages are increased.

So what?????

Population reduced!

we are coming from a country which is managing 130 crores of population. Kuwait could not manage just 9 lakhs indians!!!!

All the problems are coming by traffic crowd.
Just 2 simple solution
1. Increase the infrastructure
2.Limit importing cars

Instead of this two steps, kicking out expats will be danger to kuwait economy.

May Allah protect the economy of kuwait.

salaries will increase eventually, but this increase is not beneficial to the person because the increase is absorbed by increased cost of living. So the ones crying about salary increase continues to cry about increasing cost of living. the bar of contentment keeps eluding.

Middle and Low-income families will leave Kuwait and the process already started as we can see a lot of Flat for rent boards hanging in front of apartments. If demand is less the prize cannot hold high for a long time.Upper-middle-class families also would plan to send their families back home for children's studies if the commodity prices and visa expenses are high, which eventually affect all businesses related to expatriates in Kuwait.
