Legal health papers to illegal expats

July 1, 20160

A new portal has been opened for visa traders to flood the local labor market with manpower illegally as the Kuwait Municipality noticed the issuance of thousands of health certificates to domestic workers, some of whom are absconders, criminals and Residency Law violators but the Municipality cannot do anything about the issue, reports Al-Rai daily.

A reliable source from the Municipality revealed that from the ‘labor’ portal which tightened its grip on visa traders, up to the ‘health’ portal wherein irregularities and visa trading continue;

“there is suspicion of forgery, fraud and manipulation of health certificates issued by the Ministry of Health to laborers considering 90 percent of them are on domestic worker visa. They got the certificates officially as the documents were authenticated by the Health Ministry, but the whole process is against the law.

The visa traders have exhausted the labor market despite various steps being taken by the government to stop them. The fact that the ministry is issuing health certificates to these workers is considered a new portal for the visa traders, especially since most of those given the certificates turned out to be absconders while some are wanted by law for involvement in different crimes.”
