KUWAIT CITY, May 28: The Public Authority for Manpower is currently working on a plan to enable expatriate workers who are registered in companies and establishments whose files has been closed in recent times to transfer their residency to other companies.

These files were ultimately closed due to a lack of a clearly defined automatic procedure for them. However, considering the humanitarian circumstances, it has been decided to allow the transfer of these workers. The condition is that their files must be “cleared” of workers by July this year.

The transfer process will be subject to specific regulations and conditions. Notably, the transfer will only be permitted to valid files with other companies, reports Al Jarida. Additionally, workers will be allowed to transfer from one file to another if more than 12 months have passed since their work permit was issued with the closed/suspended company.

For workers employed by companies holding licenses for small and medium enterprises, it is emphasized that a minimum of 3 years must elapse from the issuance of the work permit as a requirement for transferring their employment. The final decision to accept or reject the transfer will be made accordingly.

These measures taken by the Public Authority for Manpower aim to address the circumstances faced by expatriate workers affected by the suspension of companies. By facilitating their transfer to other companies, consideration is given to their individual situations and the necessity to ensure their welfare.
