  • Nepal – 1,405 dinars

Al-Qabas sources revealed that the domestic labor offices requested a meeting with the concerned authorities, and it was scheduled to take place on Sunday.

But it was postponed for various reasons, pointing out that the cost of bringing in the new worker reached 1480 dinars for the contract for the Philippines, including 990 dinars for the office and 490 for the platform for the return of workers from abroad.

The sources stated that the financial cost and potential losses will be borne by the “guarantor” contract holder, and he will have the right to recover the amount of 990 dinars only.

He stated that the offices guarantee the right to return the financial rights of the sponsor, which amount to 900 dinars, according to the contracts and regulations agreed upon by the sponsor, but the amounts of the platform for domestic workers are borne by the sponsor in the event that the worker does not arrive or is returned after her arrival in Kuwait.

He pointed out that there is another problem related to contracts and the trial period, especially with the recruitment of workers from the Philippines, for the period of stone is two weeks and maybe lost from the concluded contract since the Philippines is considered the beginning of the contract since the worker’s arrival in Kuwait and not to the sponsor’s home.
