KUWAIT CITY, Oct 27: The work contracts of expatriates who are still working in the government are for a period of only one year, reports Al-Anba daily. The sources explained that all contracts, even using the services of any non-Kuwaitis, are renewed annually, and there are no 5 years or open-ended contracts any more. The sources reassured all Kuwaitis, whether they have children who aspire to obtain a government job or those who are about to graduate and are worried that a job will not be provided for them, that there is no renewal for any expatriate at all as long as a citizen is available to fill any specialization and this applies to all ministries without any exception.
This came in response to a question about the completion of the implementation of Resolution No. 11 of 2017 regarding the rules and procedures for Kuwaitization of government jobs last August, whose implementation period is set at five years, and 22 specialties are still occupied by expatriates.
These disciplines include a group of engineering jobs, teaching, education, training, social, educational, and sports services, science jobs, livestock, agricultural, aquaculture, financial, economic, and commercial jobs, groups of law, politics, Islamic affairs, forensic evidence, and prevention, rescue, and professional and service jobs.
