Manager hired from abroad wants release after one year

I’m working in a company in Kuwait in a managerial position and the work permit also shows the position as a manager and salary as KD 450 only. I was recruited from India on a two-year visa. Is it possible to get release after one year?

Name withheld

Answer: No, you can’t get a release after one year unless your current sponsor has no objection to giving you a release. Even after you complete serving the company for two years in accordance with the contract signed, the company will still not be obliged to give you a release but can send you back to your country of origin. However after the two-year contract period, if it is renewed for another year, you will then be entitled for a release as you would have put in a total of 3 years service as demanded by the Labour Law.
