MP propose exit visas on expats

Friday, October 20, 2017

MP Waleed Al-Tabtabaei proposed imposing exit visas for expatriates to be able to leave the country.

The lawmaker submitted a draft law to amend existing laws requiring that expatriates working in the private sector must obtain a special permit from the public manpower authority to be able to leave the country.

The permit can be given only after the approval of the expatriates’ sponsors.

Currently Saudi Arabia and Qatar are the only states in the Gulf that require exit visas from their expatriate community.

Tabtabaei proposed that the exit visa measure should apply to expatriates in the private sector and domestic helpers. Expatriates working in the government already cannot leave without a permit from the government department employing them.

The only reason for this rule is to increase the earnings of all the Kuwaitis who sell visas and charge for every signature the expat needs from the sponsor.

This exit letter/visa is a big headache. We are facing this on daily basis. If something goes wrong in our home country during weekend or during holidays then need to wait for ministries to open. If they automate this system then there will be a solution. But till now it is just a document from one office to another.

Not Wise thinking

Dear MP Mr.Waleed,
Every exit stamp of an employee the Sponsor is aware by their respective Mandoop .This is a height for your Immature understanding
.. Every person irrespective of their nationality has a personal document and that is their own PASSPORT ---
Although the passport is a personal document of an invidual person . YET there are some companies who force their employee to handover their passport to the company which not RIGHT AND UNLAWFUL ...WHY THESE COMPANIES STILL DO NOT OBEY THE LAWS.. AND HARASS THE EXPATS..
Do not compare yourself to Europe and West there is no exit entry fees charges.
This IS baseless CONVERSATION ------

This exit visa(NOC) is already there for ministry employees. its to make employer aware of employee leaving. after absconding fraud or some crime this will make the person not to leave easily as usual. emergency exit is not an issue just ask any working in ministries to get the knowledge ..

If the new proposal of exit permit is introduced will this apply to developed countries? Certainly not, because they will apply the
same to them. Therefore this matter has to be handled by the
Governments of each country who constitute the majority expatriate work force. I hope the MPs realize that the expatriate labor in this country is for the welfare and development of this country.

Then what is the use of passport. The only draw back on this Arab world is that why they did not make progress as compared to Europe they never bother to think out of box, the modern slavery system stop everyone to go beyond there limits. these type of peoples need such system that other people earn for them. when they are born they are taught that you are kafeel \ sponsor and these expectorate is your property use it the way you want.

What if somebody want to fly in emergency to their country at night or or early morning, he should not fly and wait for the offices to get open next day to ger their letterof leaving the country. Have some logic pls.

This proposal is only for his mental satisfaction. All other countries should implement the same for kuwaitis as well...

Happy Expat

These guys here wake up every morning with some new ideas ultimately to torture expats and make their life more and more difficult. Better expel all expats once and for ever and then enjoy yourself.
