Kuwait News: The Ministries of Health, Internal Affairs, Foreign Affairs, and Finance, along with the Public Authority for Manpower to issue visas for domestic workers, have reached a consensus on issuing new visas to recruit new domestic workers from abroad.
The good news is coming soon for those who have been waiting for months for new visas for domestic workers to be issues as soon as possible.
The recommendation of five government agencies was sent to the Cabinet for its consideration and approval.
The move comes in the wake of the reluctance of many workers to return and the fact that Kuwaiti families are finding it difficult to find domestic helpers as there is a great need for such workers in the country.
The Council of Ministers will consider the recommendations favorably and is likely to soon approve the appropriate mechanism for issuing new visas to hire domestic workers.
