It is very important for all expat workers in Kuwait to secure work permits in order to avoid legal problems. The Public Authority for Manpower has granted access for the Labor Department to receive individual requests and other matters over work permit transfers during the official working days. This move is beneficial to all expat workers to expedite the process for the procedures and to lessen waiting time as well.
Payment transactions are acceptable also at the Labor Department through automated system, including payment of new fees and payment of those who have been working for the past 6 months under the same sponsor. Fulfillment of all requirements and conditions stated in the Ministry decision No. 57a / 2016 are also included.
The State of Kuwait is home to almost 70 % expats from its population. They are the driving force and structure of manpower and Kuwait tries its best to take good care of them.
