Kuwait: Expats With Low Degree Scores To Be Banned

Kuwait’s General Authority for Manpower is reportedly planning to implement a ban on issuing work permits to foreign nationals with lower Grade Point Average (GPA) scores.

The government is currently taking several steps towards resolving Kuwait’s demographic imbalance and restructuring the local labour market, including plans to endorse and accredit expats’ degrees as a precondition to renewing their residency visas.

The sources said this step will help adjust demographic problems and make sure that only highly specialized and skilled people work in Kuwait. The sources said organizational decisions will be issued in the coming months to fight visa trafficking and prevent unqualified labour from coming to Kuwait.
