“Ghost companies” sponsor expat workers
Ministry of Interior (MoI) issued in a press statement that after thorough observation and investigation of more than 345 expatriates, the MoI discovered that the sponsorship of these migrant workers are actually 15 “ghost companies” that are already closed, located in Sharq area.The names of these 15 companies were included in the blacklist to prevent them from being used to employ migrant workers here in Kuwait. The company owners will be called for to explain why their companies cease operations and why these migrant workers are under their sponsorship.
Ghost companies or fake companies here in Kuwait are sad to say, proliferating and many migrant workers are falling victims into these. It won’t be harmful for us to be vigilant when applying for a job here in Kuwait and elsewhere.
