Sponsor approval must for domestic workers to travel abroad

The domestic workers in Kuwait will henceforth require permission of their sponsors to leave Kuwait for any other country, other than their home country, as per the latest regulation.

Any expatriate labourer with Article 20 residency can leave the country only if accompanied by their sponsor, or a family member of the sponsor, or with written authorization from sponsor approving the worker's travel, sources said.

Workers leaving for their home countries, are however, not covered by this regulation.

To obtain the authorization for the worker to travel alone, the sponsor will have to personally visit the General Department of Border Crossings, and obtain the document, sign it, thereby granting permission to the worker for travel, the sources explained.
