Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) affirmed readiness to fully implement Decision No.1868/2019 that determines the employment ratio for non-governmental agencies based on their employment rate and other economic activities under the “Kuwaitization” system, in coordination with the Ministry of Commerce.

An annual fee of KD 300 will be imposed on the agencies that do not abide by the national employment quota for every extra work permit issued to a non-Kuwaiti employee. A fee of KD 500 was proposed earlier but it was reduced to KD 300 per worker registered in the companies and institutions.
