KUWAIT CITY, Jan 28: As part of its efforts to combat visa traffickers, the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) is planning to automatically link private and public institutions and agencies to build a fence around the visa traders, reports Al-Rai daily.
A source at the PAM said a certificate issued by the Public Authority for Civil Information (PACI) will flash on the screens of labor departments after completion of the automated connection, complete with the date of operation of the building or office, and this will have a great impact on the so-called temporary renting of apartments.
The source added PAM has asked PACI to approve the registration of the name of the government contract, its number and name and duration of the project on the civil IDs of the laborer.
The source revealed PAM has obtained the approval of the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation to link automatically the eight affiliate oil companies, to issue work permits and the estimated required labor in accordance with the controls set by PAM.
PAM has also requested the General Traffic Department to approve the registration of vehicles used in government contracts on the contract and not on the main company’s file, and the number of drivers is according to the number of cars registered on the government project.
The source explained PAM is currently working to establish an automated link with the Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources.
