Labor shortage acute; Kuwait allows expatriates to change work permits


Highlight:

  • Permission to change work permit for dependent visa holders
  • Those currently in Kuwait can only avail this facility with the permission of the sponsor
  • The current ban on expatriates changing their work permits to selected areas has been lifted

Kuwait City: Expatriates allowed to change work permit in Kuwait. The Public Authority for Manpower said expatriates engaged in government jobs could switch to jobs in the private sector. In the wake of the acute shortage of labor in the private sector in the country, those working in various sectors under the government were allowed to switch to the private sector with the permission of the sponsor. The job shortage in the private sector has intensified after tens of thousands of expatriates left Kuwait due to job losses and the financial crisis in the wake of the Kovid expansion.

At the same time, the Manpower Authority said that those working in government contracts and small and medium enterprises could not change their work permits. Those currently in Kuwait can only avail this facility with the permission of the sponsor.

The ban on employment for expatriates has been lifted

The authority also said that the existing ban on expatriates changing their work permits to selected areas has been lifted. The ban on shifting jobs to industries, co-operative societies and free trade zones has been lifted. The new decisions are due to the changes that the Kovid expansion has created in the employment sector in the country. Kuwait is a country that relies heavily on expatriates in the employment sector, especially in the private sector. About 90 per cent of the jobs in the private sector are held by expatriates. It is estimated that 1.34 lakh expatriates have returned from Kuwait in the past one year. This has been attributed to the financial crisis that followed the expansion of Kovid, the loss of jobs and the expiration of visas.
