Kuwait Manpower authority – 3 year ban on transfer of residence in Kuwait
Manpower authority is planning to issue decision of banning visa transfers of expats hired from abroad to work in private sector to another company before 3 years.
This step will enable Kuwait authorities considerably to fight visa trading and human trafficking and reduce marginal labor. At present visa transfers are done after one year from entry or by paying KD 300 fee for six month from entry date.
Sources informed that companies on projects will greatly benefit from this rule.
