Visa for Pakistani nationals

February 20, 20170 Comments

I am living and working in Kuwait and would like you to clarify about Kuwait work visa for Pakistanis, because I was going through your Legal Clinic questions and their answers.

What I have come to know is that Kuwait Visas (any type) for Pakistan are not banned but there are ‘restrictions’ and the application needs to go through the process of MoI approval. Kindly let me know the current status about work visa for Pakistani nationals and the procedure for obtaining the same.

Answer: In a nutshell, the status quo remains with regard to the issuance of visas to Pakistani nationals. The mantra has been and remains: ‘No ban but some restrictions on the issuance of visas to Pakistanis’.

These restrictions include getting security clearance from Kuwait’s security authorities which in most cases is not granted. Being a Pakistani national is therefore a huge stumbling block is acquiring any type of visa to Kuwait be it for work, visit or dependent.

Salary deduction

I went on unpaid vacation from Dec 20-29, 2016. I applied for this period only and returned to work on Jan 3, as Dec 30-31 was weekend. I returned to Kuwait on Jan 1 and Jan 1 was national holiday and Jan 2, 2017 sick leave. So in this scenario how will I be paid. Can my company deduct for Jan 1 and Jan 2 also? Name withheld Answer: Your company cannot deduct your salary for Jan 1 since it was a holiday for everybody. For Jan 2 you should have had a duly signed sick leave paper from a medical doctor. If you did there shouldn’t be any deduction but if you didn’t, the company deserves the right to deduct a day’s pay from your salary. Source : Arabtimes
