Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and State Minister for Planning and Development Affairs Hind Al- Sabeeh says the ministry has started applying the plan allotted for modifying the population structure of the country, based on a study conducted in this regard in collaboration with the concerned authorities.

Meanwhile, sources affirmed that the minister held intense discussions and meetings with the concerned authorities to prepare a draft law on the population structure, explaining that the draft law necessitates implementing a quota system based on nationality of the expatriates.

They said the delay in finalizing this draft law is due to some international conventions that Kuwait has signed with other countries. Indicating that there are about 3 million expatriates in the country, the sources revealed that the highest number of expatriate personnel in the country is from India, followed by Egypt and then Bangladesh, Philippines, Syria and Pakistan.

A plan to set a quota on the number of expats that can enter Kuwait from each country would soon be presented to the Cabinet, Kuwait Times has reported. Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and Planning Hind Al Subaih announced in March last year she was considering setting a limit on the size of the population of any one nationality in Kuwait in a bid to balance the Gulf state’s demography. About two-thirds of the total population of 3m are estimated to be expatriates, with a high proportion from south Asia. Indians are the largest group in the country.
