Many have had their work permits revoked after their residency visas expired due to being stranded in the country in the wake of a travel ban following the Kovid crisis. A total of 12,391 people lost their work visas in this way, the authority said. 6245 people have returned home after ending their life in exile. About 100 people got new work permits through job changes.
Last January, the authority reported that 12 Kuwaiti expatriates were leaving the job market every hour. Many of them were forced to leave the country due to the employment crisis in Kovid’s background, the report said.
Hundreds of thousands of expatriates are stranded in their home countries due to the travel ban imposed by Kuwait in the wake of the coup. In addition, many people, including Malayalees, are stranded on their way to Kuwait in countries such as Dubai and Oman. They arrived in other countries to comply with the two – week quarantine requirement in a third country for entry into Kuwait by people from countries with high levels of Kovid. But a complete travel ban was announced soon after. Many of them had returned home in the hope that the Kuwaiti travel ban would not be lifted in the near future.
