Changing Visit Visa to Work Visa

First of all, thank you very much for providing this platform to ask and get information about Kuwait’s visa rule. This is very useful for someone like me. Currently I am here in Kuwait on Visit visa. As I don’t know the visa rule here, My curiosity is whether I can come back immediately on working visa once I exit or not? Also please, is there any procedure/ possibility to change visit visa to work visa?

Answer: Once you exit Kuwait after a visit you can come back immediately on a work visa without facing any problems. On the other hand, it is almost near impossible to change a visit visa to a work visa. In times past it used to be possible but the practice has since been abandoned or strictly limited in bid to restructure the population balance
