Exiting Kuwait and applying for New Work Visa

I am from India, I came to work in Kuwait on factory visa. Now my company has been shut down and I found a new job in different company but since my visa is Masnae I couldn’t transfer to that company. But that company has agreed to give me visa. Right now I am on Visa 14. If I exit Kuwait on a Visa 14 without cancelling the visa how long would it take for my new company to apply for a visa.

Answer: Exiting Kuwait on Visa 14 means that you are leaving the country for good so that visa is automatically cancelled. This means the issue of cancelling or not cancelling the visa does not arise. The new company can begin the process of applying for a visa immediately you exit the country. Indeed there is no time bar as to when to apply for a new work visa.
