Visa transfer for newcomer in Kuwait

I am a newcomer in Kuwait, with visa 18. My visa was arranged by one of my friends who is working in Kuwait. I have completed my medical and other formalities and waiting for my Civil ID. My visa was issued for 2 years and I am told that it can’t be transferred for upto 2 years from the current sponsor. In this condition, can I work in Kuwait with a good company and also is there any possibilities to transfer my visa within a time frame because I am a post graduate.

Name withheld

Answer: Being a post-graduate plays no role in visa transfer for those hired abroad. In this perspective, if your current sponsor who brought you to Kuwait from your home country tells you that you cannot transfer your visa before the expiry of two years, you have to accept that and wait for the two years to expire. Working with a good company in Kuwait will depend upon the availability of job vacancy in that company and whether you possess the relevant skills the company is looking for.
