My sister has been working with a company for the last 3 years and had entered the country on a factory visa. She has now finished her contract and would like to transfer her visa to a private company but with the same sponsor. Please advise if it would be possible.
Answer: According to the latest law on the issue — although there remains a lot of ambiguity — if you are on a factory visa you can transfer to the main file of the same sponsor on payment of a KD 350 fee. And from this “main file” you can transfer — technically — to any other private sector company without any problems after spending a year on this file.
