Kuwait: Visa transfer made easy for expats hired by fake firms

Kuwait’s Public Authority for Manpower has announced that expat workers whose companies have been closed or those recruited for firms that do not exist can now get their residency visas transferred after due procedures.

The new decision will benefit hundreds of people who have been deceived by companies and whose files were closed after they entered the country, as it was not their fault.

Bashayer Al Mutairi, Data Recording Monitor at the Inspection Department of the Manpower Authority, said that the authority gives the worker who has been brought to Kuwait on a visa of a company that is either closed or does not exist, a facility to transfer their residency and initiate legal procedures against non-compliant employers.
