KUWAIT CITY, June 7: MP Adnan Abdulsamad has forwarded queries to Minister of Commerce and Industry Abdullah Essa Al- Salman about the renewal of work permits for expatriates who are 60 years and above holding a secondary school certificate or lower. He wants to know if a decision has been taken to amend Administrative Resolution number 250/2020 regarding conditions for the renewal of work permits for the abovementioned expatriates.

He inquired if the decision stipulates new fees for the renewal of work permits; if health insurance covering fees in private hospitals is required; if highly qualified expatriates above 60 years old are covered by the decision; if differences in salaries were considered as some expatriates are receiving a salary of KD 300 while others are receiving KD 1,000; if the decision is applicable to those who own companies registered at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry in partnership with citizens; and if the concerned institutions have conducted studies to assess the impact of a such decision on the labor market and salaries.
