I am a diploma holder, visa status — engineer, 19 years working in Kuwait as QA QC engineer. My visa renewal is on Jan 7, 2019. Is it possible to renew as same position? I have driving licence till 2022. My current salary is KD 650.
Answer: Under current regulations, holders of engineering degrees must obtain no-objection certificates from Kuwait Engineers Society before they could have their residence permits processed for the first time or renewed. Indeed the issue of diploma holders in engineering is a grey area as only degree holders are mentioned in the new regulations. Our advice therefore is that you visit the office of the Kuwait Engineers Society who will be in a better position to tell you whether you are covered under the new regulations or not.
