Medical checkups must for returning maids

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

The interior ministry called on sponsors of maids from 41 Asian and African countries to make them undergo fresh medical tests any time they return from a visit to their home countries. The ministry said the regulations are based on new orders by the health ministry and urged all sponsors to take their maids for fresh medical tests after they return from vacations to their home countries.

The new regulations apply to domestic helpers from India, Bangladesh, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Ethiopia and other nations.

According to the latest statistics, around 650,000 domestic helpers, who mainly hail from the Indian Subcontinent, the Philippines and several African nations, work in Kuwait.

Anybody can get disease any time how they will take. will you deport them or you will care him or her. You need people to take care of you so you help them to help you.

Sound good. But needs clarifications. Suppose the maid is detected for some infection, will she be treated for in Kuwait or sent back.

If the maid is going to be sent back then its not a good move.
