Request to reduce domestic workers quarantine to five-day

Head of the union of domestic help offices Khalid Al-Dakhnan said the union proposed to reduce the quarantine time for arriving domestic helpers to five days instead of two weeks, especially since they undergo three PCR tests before arriving proving they are free of COVID19.

According to him, this measure will reduce costs and save large amounts of money for citizens and expats.

Dakhnan said that the recruitment rate set according to a commerce ministry decision is KD 990 for each helper, with KD 490 to be added as expenses for quarantine in case the helpers are arriving from the Philippines, and KD 390 if they are coming from India.
