Dependent to work visa ban mulled – Kuwait Times

KUWAIT: Well-informed sources at the manpower authority said the authority is about to issue a resolution suspending the transfer of dependent (article 22) visas to article 18 visas to work for the private sector. The sources added that the decision was made following intensive studies with the aim of preventing expats from changing their residency status.

The sources explained the aim of this decision is also to limit the spread of marginal labor, including expats who manage to transfer their visas and get work permits and yet work in activities other than those they transfer to, start their own unlicensed businesses or even provide home delivery services. The sources noted that the law currently in effect allows the transfer of a spouse’s visa provided the sponsor approves it and is present at the labor department in person to sign an official waiver and transfer form.
