Labour Ministry likely to increase work permit issuance fee for expats
The Ministry of Social Affairs and Labour has issued a decision to increase all fees pertaining to issuance of work permits, visa renewal and visa transfer for expatriates.
According to informed sources, the ministry is awaiting the response from Fatwa and Legislation Department, particularly, as the Labour Law stipulates that the Minister of Social Affairs and Labour has the right to increase the fee without issuance of a law from the National Assembly.
Further, the sources confirmed that the increase will not be too high and that the fee charged in Kuwait may still be low, in comparison to other GCC nations.
