Public Authority for Manpower will suspend all activities, except renewals and final cancellation visa for traveling, at the labor departments in the last 10 days of this month to carry out annual inventory process, reports Al-Anba daily quoting informed sources.
They revealed that the authority has been considering the possibility of carrying out the stocktaking without necessarily halting other activities, indicating that, if this is possible, there will not be any need to suspend the activities.
The sources said labor departments used to suspend activities for around 15 days during the annual inventory period in the past, affirming that the authority is trying its best to provide stress-free services to its numerous clients.
He said the employers whose files are put under code 71 will not be allowed to process any transaction while those under code 73 will not be allowed to hire new workers or renew work permits. He added those under code 74 will not be allowed to add new files and those under code 333 will not be allowed to process transactions except the transfer of residency and final cancellation of residency for workers leaving Kuwait permanently.
He went on to say that files under code 234 will not be permitted to process transactions except the renewal of residency permit, transfer to another sponsor and final cancellation of residency permit if a worker decides to return to his home country for good.
