Answer: It is no big deal applying for a job in Kuwait but what is important is going through successfully the medical exam you will undergo before getting a resident permit.

What this means is that if you succeed in landing a job, you cannot take up the job if you don’t pass the medical exam. On the issue of being completely healed from tuberculosis, what we know is that a scar is always left in the lungs after treatment and such a scar will always show on subsequent X-rays that you will undertake.

To be frank with you such a scar will pose a problem in your bid to acquire a resident permit in Kuwait even if you succeed in handling that problem during the medicals you undertake in your country. In a nutshell your chances of going through the medical or not is 50/50.
