MP want medical screening for all expats at airport while returning from vacation

Monday, August 6, 2018

MP Mohammad Al-Dalal has submitted a proposal to allocate a building near or inside the Kuwait International Airport for the medical examination of domestic workers or any other expatriate worker entering the country including those who have traveled and returned to their jobs.

Al-Dalal pointed out all expatriate workers should undergo medical tests not only during the renewal of their visas in order to protect families and the entire society as many of them might be suffering from communicable diseases. He said whoever is found unhealthy or sick should be treated, vaccinated or deported depending on the nature of the disease or health condition.

He warned against waiting until the time of renewing the visas before requiring expatriate workers to undergo medical tests as this might endanger the lives of other people.

I think we see lot of comments mostly against expats but all bluff few get passed or get attention just to make expats more frustrated and reason to leave Kuwait there is too many people want to leave but as situation is not that good back in home country that''s why people stuck up in Kuwait

Another proposal for some private business to make money from expatriates.

God bless this MP for his noble idea. Another source of income for government & harassment for poor expats.
