Tests required for expats

November 5, 20220 Comments

According to an official source in the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM), PAM has started working on listing the top professions in which expatriate workers are recruited with the aim of determining a smart mechanism to test them in their countries in partnership with the Kuwaiti embassies abroad, reports Al-Qabas daily.

The source explained that, “This step aims to implement a recruitment mechanism based on testing new expatriate workers. The tests will be conducted in the countries that send their workers. The tests will be for the targeted professions, and will be held in two parts – practical and theoretical. The practical section will be conducted in Kuwait and the theoretical in the countries of recruitment”.

The source revealed that the first phase will target about 20 professions. In addition, the Kuwait Society of Engineers has prepared a center for professional tests to be conducted on 71 different professions in support of workers in the engineering sector.

The society, during meetings with PAM, announced its readiness to operate the center upon approval of the plan by the competent government agencies. According to informed sources, the first phase will target the new work permits, and then the experience will be generalized to those wishing to renew permits in the professions that will be counted. In addition, statistics issued by the Public Authority for Civil Information (PACI) revealed that the number of technicians and assistant specialists in natural sciences and engineering reached 21,387. These jobs are among the targeted groups in the upcoming theoretical and practical tests.
