Residence transfer from company to company

I have been working in a construction international company in Kuwait for the past four and half years. They have now given me a release to transfer to another company. And I have got a good offer from the company. My question is, is it possible to transfer my residence from company to company? Or do I have to pay KD 350 to transfer?

Answer: You don’t have to pay anything for the transfer because you are working for a local firm and you want to transfer to another company. You have also got the release. That’s all you require in the private sector after completing the mandatory requirement of working a certain period with your current firm. Had you been working on a government project, that would have a different story all together.
