The best way to evaluate and examine the Bachelor, Master, PhD or any other Degree is through WES.

Kuwait including the Gulf countries should ask the candidates to get an Equivalency Report of their educational documents from WES (World Education Services) to avoid acceptance of any forged/fake documents.

This is a good step . As many expat having good positions and key positions with fake degrees.
Those positions should be given to the people who deserve them .

By sitting in AC office how they will investigate the degree is fake or original. let them go to concerned university physically check & verify whether Engg college exist or not.
