No work permit for graduates under 30 from July

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Public Authority for Manpower confirmed that the decision to stop granting visas to postgraduates and graduates under 30 will go in effect at the start of July. The law was to be implemented at the beginning of the year, but was postponed for more studies and to remove legal loopholes, local media Al-Rai reported.

According to report, the decision aims at attracting experienced people from outside the country who are over 30, apart from instructing businessmen and private companies to use national labor and create new job opportunities for youth, especially for those with university degrees.

Today I read the news they have scrapped the law banning below 30 years of graduates. Thank God they have taken right decision.This all happened because of our comments.

Hi Kuwait Govt,

This decission of implimenting this rule will be very effective for growth of kuwait.... Young generation is always the reason for the growth of the country. And you are taking the the decission to step back the younger generation. You are taking the the step to not to develop kuwait. Youths are the tommorrows growth..... Please do give opportunities to younger generations to showcase their talent.. dont make their endovorous talent ruined by age factor or barrier...

Public Authority for Manpower is full of outdated incompetent persons.
By the way 1000 I Rs = 44.33 KWD is very good rate.

Instead of playing with younger generation, govt. should take steps of not renewing work permits for above 60 as followed by neighbor Saudi Arabia. If anyone residing in KWT above 60, they should be on dependent visa and not work visa.

This will help infusing fresh blood in all sectors.

Throughout the world countries are looking for young graduates but Kuwait is opposite. Hope they will reverse this decision and go out with the world. It seems they have enough graduates locally produced. If this is right implent it .

Not too sure as to how a blanket ban on all UGs / PGs under 30 would help the economy. As a result this could strangulate the private sector companies. Fully agree with Syed that youngsters outsmart the experienced ones in certain areas.

As usual confusion plus with new rules. Is this new rule applicable for new candidates outside of Kuwait or to everyone be it in/outside.

Is the new rule applicable to professionals like engineers and doctors?

There could be the situation where many business man may be under 30 years.
Secondly ,this is an old concept that the old in age will be more knowledgeable /expert compare to young Graduates / post Graduates. There are many fields where young graduates are more effective than old .
Actually it should not be for Contractors /Private sector. Yes,for all governmental organizations it will be more appropriate.

High rents.
High charges everywhere .
All the best .

While Dubai recently announced a 10 year visa program for skilled graduates, here we have Kuwait bringing even more restrictions.
