Kuwait government authorizes new agency for job seekers from Kerala

As a welcome relief for job aspirants from Kerala, Kuwait government authorized a new agency having operations in the state, to hold medical screening of job seekers.

The freshly authorized GAMCA Medical Centres have their bases in Kerala and charges only Rs.3600 as fee for medical screening.

A notice issued by the Embassy of Kuwait to all authorized agents and individuals states that medical reports will be accepted from GAMCA Medical Centres only from 29th June 2015.

The decision by the Kuwait authority came following complaints from job aspirants from Kerala that the Khadamat Integrated Solutions Pvt. Ltd (KISPL). Overcharged for their services of medical screening process, a mandatory service for visa clearance to Kuwait.

KISPL has shut its Kochi operations following the complaint filed by job seekers with police alleging excess amount charged for medical screening. The overcharging of fee by the agency was a big issue in the state from where large number of youths come to Kuwait in search of jobs.
