Update work permit

August 3, 20160 Comments

Quoted from Arabtimes – I am requesting your assistance for the below problem as it is affecting my career … due to lack of a driving license.

I am working in my company as a sales executive since 2013 and my salary was 450 when I joined. Currently I am drawing KD 625 as my basic salary after getting this year’s increment but my “Izen Amel” (work permit) still showed KD 545 when my residence was renewed in March 2016.

When I approached the Traffic Department for a license with my company salary certificate, the officials informed me that the same amount should be there on the “Izen Amel” … which can only be amended when my residence is renewed the next time, technically speaking in February 2018 as our company gets our residence for 2 years normally.

Is there any way to amend “Izen Amel” in between residence renewals? Your assistance in this matter will highly appreciated

Name withheld

Answer: While there is no law which says that the work permit can’t be amended at any point during the residence, any effort to do so will result in failure because it is common practice at the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor/Public Manpower Authority to make the changes only when there is transfer or extension of residence.

Secondly, the Traffic Department is right because the law clearly states that only the salary mentioned on the work permit is accepted for various transactions in the country.
