Reports: Only expats with ‘good’ GPA to be allowed to work in Kuwait

GDN Online Desk

Kuwait City - The manpower authority is planning to ban issuing permits to expats with university degrees entering Kuwait to work in the private sector unless they have a minimum of ‘good’ GPA, according to informed government sources.

The government is currently taking several steps towards resolving Kuwait’s demographic imbalance and restructuring the local labour market, including plans to endorse and accredit expats’ degrees as a precondition to renewing their residency visas.

The sources said this step will help adjust demographic problems and make sure that only highly specialised and skilled people work in Kuwait. The sources said organisational decisions will be issued in the coming months to fight visa trafficking and prevent unqualified labour from coming to Kuwait.
