Kuwait likely to hire domestic workers from other countries

The Interior Ministry, together with its foreign affairs counterpart is now considering the possibility of hiring domestic helps from countries other than those countries which regularly send these workers to Kuwait, revealed officials from the General Department for Residency Affairs.

The officials said that the move is aimed to overcome pressure exerted by certain countries and embassies in terms of salaries for domestic workers. The announcement of new countries will be made soon.

The study may cancel the category of rejected domestic workers and a shelter will be established for domestic workers under the supervision of Interior Ministry and not domestic workers bureaus. The bureaus will also not be permitted to re-employ the rejected workers under another sponsor.
