@akil, Kuwait likes to suck expats blood and squeeze their pockets, because they are cowards and afraid to do the same to citizens. If they apply it on the citizens, the concerned minister will be grilled at the parliament.

Ministry of Health is already charging for blood tests. Last month I had to carry out blood test for Vitamin D and was charged KD.5 for it. Also, I had to wait for 3 weeks to get the report from Salmiya West clinic. Also, my relatives had to undergo blood tests in Mubarak Al-Kabeer and paid a total of KD.15 for few tests.
