PAM amend the mechanism for granting work permits and transferring workers brought from abroad

The Public Authority for Manpower agreed to amend the mechanism of granting work permits and transferring workers brought from abroad in order to address the rise in labor prices in the country.

According to the decision, the PAM allow the employer to bring in workers estimated for his license from abroad without necessitating local transfer. The previous decision allows employer to recruit only a limited number of workers from outside, forcing employers to recruit rest of the vacancies from locally inside Kuwait, which led to an increase in labor prices.

The decision also impose an additional fee of 150 Dinar for the first time work permit and 300 dinars for transfer to another company within 3 year. In both cases, the transfer requires the employer’s approval. The new decision will come into effect from June 1st.

The decision is aimed to limit the residency trade and make it easier for employers to carry out their commercial activities. is now on WhatsApp Channel    Follow Channel
