Kuwait prioritizes skilled workers: New regulations for Egyptian work permits.

KUWAIT CITY, April 24: In a recent development, Al-Jarida has learned from reliable sources within the Ministry of Interior and the Public Authority for Manpower that directives have been issued to halt the issuance of work permits for Egyptian workers as of yesterday. This decision comes as part of efforts to implement new regulations aimed at ensuring greater oversight in the issuance process.

According to the sources, the decision to suspend work permits for Egyptian workers follows a series of complaints lodged by employers. These complaints allege that certain Egyptian authorities have been pressuring them to procure insurance for each worker from a non-Kuwaiti insurance company. Such practices have raised concerns about the transparency and fairness of the recruitment process.

In response to these concerns, both the Public Authority for Manpower and the Ministry of Interior are actively working to establish stringent controls over the recruitment of Egyptian workers. Priority will be given to individuals holding advanced degrees and specialized skills that align with the specific needs of the Kuwaiti labor market.

This move reflects a broader effort to streamline the recruitment process, enhance transparency, and ensure that foreign workers entering Kuwait contribute positively to the country’s workforce. As authorities move forward with implementing these new controls, further updates are expected to be announced in due course.
