Kuwait Opens Door To Long Term Expat Residence With Major Visa Announcement

Kuwait’s Public Manpower Authority (PAM) announced Wednesday that it would amend rules for expats over 60 with only a higher secondary degree or lower. Now, PAM will allow these expats to transfer their residence to the private sector.

Previously, there had been a total ban on residency renewal.

The new rules are effective from Wednesday, Kuwait Times reported, adding that the amendment will allow expats who work in government jobs and state-owned agencies and departments, those on dependent visas or investors or partners in commercial or industrial activity to transfer their residence permits to the private sector.

Expats that are aged over 60 with a self-sponsored residency will also be allowed to transfer residence to the private sector.
