I have been given a commercial visit visa by a company in Kuwait. Can it be transferred to work visa once I arrive in Kuwait. I am a graduate (degree attested) and have Microsoft certifications. Do I need to do a medical in India?
Answer: The rules on this issue are changing so fast that you really don’t know what tomorrow will bring. But talking about the current situation, transfers are currently being allowed from commercial visit visa to work permits.
You have, however, to remember that you will be allowed to transfer only to the firm which sent you the visa and not to any other company.
Secondly you don’t need to get a medical examination done in India. But remember to check once again for the current situation on the rules of transfer of the commercial visit visa before you leave your country so that you don’t land in a fix after your arrival in Kuwait.
