Kuwait plan Visa Exit System for workers

December 17, 20151 Comment

Following the examples of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Kuwait announced plans to adopt an exit-visa system that would require migrants to gain written permission from their sponsor/employer in order to leave the country.

This additional restriction to migrants’ mobility displaces more authority to kafeels and provides them with yet another tool to exploit workers.

Acting Director General of the Manpower Authority Ahmad al-Mousa told al-Rai newspaper that they are now working “on finding a mechanism” to apply the system, which authorities have previously considered, to private sector workers. Al-Mousa referred to examples of “other GCC countries” to justify the initiative but otherwise did not explain the rationale behind the policy.
