Thank you for answering our queries. I have been reading your articles since a long time. However I have one query regarding visa transfer that my mandoop told me. I have been on a dependent visa since my birth in Kuwait until 2015.
In 2015, I got a job in a factory and hence my visa was transferred from dependent to my current factory visa.
However, my mandoub said that because my visa was transferred from dependent to factory, I can still apply for jobs in the private sector, after the mandoub from the new company completes some paper formalities.
He also mentioned that had I come to Kuwait fresh, on a new factory Visa, I wouldn’t have been able to make the shift. Is this true? I’m really puzzled as the laws keep changing often. Awaiting your response.
Answer: Yes, it is true that since you did not enter Kuwait on a factory visa, you will be able to make the shift and apply for a job in the private sector. The two mandoubs you have mentioned have therefore given you the true interpretation of the law
