Kuwait likely to recruit maids through established companies

The government in Kuwait has accepted a proposal to establish a company to recruit domestic helps and replace several recruitment offices aiming to slash expenses, said MP Ahmad Lari, a member of National Assembly Financial and Economic Affairs Committee.

Stakes of the proposed company will be distributed to agencies and nationals can subscribe to a portion of shares. The company aims to improve the process of recruiting maids from abroad at a reasonable rate, and branches of the proposed company will be opened at various co-operative societies.

Hundreds of maid offices are currently operational in the country, although recruitment costs have skyrocketed over the past years.
