Kuwait rejects India’s bank guarantee measure for recruiting domestic helpers

December 5, 2014

The India government has backed down on a move to implement a KD720 ($2450) bank guarantee for Kuwaiti employers of Indian workers. Kuwait had threatened to ban Indian expatriates moving to the country in response to the guarantee payment, announced in September, during high level diplomatic talks with the Indian ambassador to Kuwait.

Kuwait has rejected India’s domestic helpers’ bank guarantee measure, which requires an employer in the Gulf nation to deposit an amount of 2,500 dollars (9,182 dinars) as bank guarantee to hire an Indian domestic help. According to Gulf News, India said that the bank guarantee would be used “for the repatriation of the housemaid and other unpaid expenses like salary, medical expenses, in case the employer fails to pay the same as per the terms of the agreement.”

India said that the bank guarantee needed to be submitted in original to the Embassy of India.

However, Kuwaitis have refused to comply by the new Indian conditions with some lawmakers arguing that the bank guarantee is a violation of the laws and norms.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged that Kuwait might consider putting a temporary halt to recruitment of Indian helpers in response to the bank guarantee decision.

  1. The route cause is the recruitment agents in india and kuwait. They give them false hope and dreams. When they come here they do not get what they have been promise by agents. Kuwaiti sponsors do not promise all these things but the agents do. I have seen many Kuwaiti families taking care of Drivers and housemaids. Also, they even bring their families to Kuwait and find them job. So many of them are well settled in life as they were going through hard time in their home country. Catch the agents who promise Heavens and India must look into this virus which is much worse than Ebola

  2. I think 250 kd is right

  3. This policy is necessary for indian

  8. Please do not blame all Kuwaitis, I know a lot of Kuwaitis they treat their maids and drivers as part of their family. How about we Indians do we treat our maids in a fair way. Look at our diplomats who take their maids to usa and other places, they make them sign forge paper

  14. The amount mentioned in this article is not correct – it is 700KD means around 2500$- pls do not wrong informations

  15. How can you generalize. You haven't met every Kuwaiti in Kuwait. And Kuwaitis will keep their money regardless of the bill passing through so I think that you are just biased here.
