Classic case of visa trading

Hello! I came to Kuwait on Dec 2, 2018. I have started working in a new company other than the company that gave me the visa with the sponsor’s permission. Now the new company wants to transfer my residence into their file. I am having Kuwait Society Approved membership for Civil Engineer. My old company has no problem in giving me release anytime. Can you please help me get some information on this topic.

Answer: We will not be far from correct if we postulate that monies changed hands between you and the sponsor who brought you to Kuwait only to allow you to work for another company and has no objection to transferring your visa to that company. This we believe is a classic case of visa trading which could land you, the sponsor and the company you are working for now in trouble during the process to effect the transfer. It is not very common for visa transfers to be effected before the expiry of the year after first entry into Kuwait. With the little input we have provided, it is left to you to forge the best way forward.
