Window open for transfer of expired ‘commercial’ to work

 KUWAIT CITY, Feb 19: Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor has declared the intention to allow the transfer of expired commercial visit visas to work permits, adding its labor sector is coordinating with the Interior Ministry’s General Department of Nationality and Passports to open the door for transfer of expired commercial visit visas to work permits to ease the dilemma of individuals holding expired commercial visit visas, reports Al-Nahar daily.

Sources noted the step has been taken due to the number of visitors with expired visas, adding that hundreds of commercial visit visas have expired and some of the owners have left the country, while many others remain here.

They added the decision issued by former Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Thikra Al-Rashidi to suspend the transfer of commercial visit visa to work permit led to the departure of many laborers, adding the Ministry of Interior is still coordinating with the ministry to allow the transfer of commercial visit visas, even if they have expired.
