Kuwait Sets New Standards For Domestic Worker Recruitment; Fees Include Travel Costs

Kuwait has announced new measures to simplify the recruitment of domestic workers, following directives from high-level Kuwaiti officials.

Under these measures, the recruitment of Filipino domestic workers will commence shortly at a cost of 700 dinars, inclusive of the travel ticket. For Sri Lankan domestic workers, the cost will be slightly higher at 750 dinars, also covering the travel ticket.

Additionally, recruitment fees for other domestic staff such as drivers or cooks will be standardised at 180 dinars, which includes the travel ticket.

According to Mohammed Ahmed Al Alyan, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Al Durra Manpower Company, these directives originate from Prime Minister Sheikh Ahmed Al Abdullah Al Sabah and First Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defense, and Minister of Interior Sheikh Fahad Al Yousef Al Sabah, along with the company’s Board of Directors.

The chairman highlighted Al Durra’s ongoing efforts to expand its services across Kuwait, including collaborations with the Cooperative Societies Union to open branches in various governorates, which will soon be operational to better serve the citizens.
