Managers must have University degree to renew work permits

Tuesday, December 18, 2018

Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) has issued a new circular which states that all employees with the designation of ‘manager’ need to provide university degree in order to renew their job titles and work permits.

Authorities clarified that all employees with the designation of ‘manager’ who were appointed after Jan 1, 2011 need to provide university degree. However, the work permits of all those working as “managers” before Jan 1, 2011 will be renewed automatically.

Good if all such managers leave Kuwait as it will give younger and efficient expatriates a better chance.

This is a good move. There are tea boys and labours who have become managers by wasta. These guys don''t know professional ethics and they treat their subordinates like their slave.
