Category: Kuwait Local News

Expats should pay 5 percent tax on remittances from Kuwait, a pro-government MP has proposed.

Kamel Al Awadhi said the collected fee would contribute towards the “highly subsidised” services foreigners receive.

The state had a right to “a share in the money transfers by expatriates obtained against services offered by the state to them including education, health in addition to highly-subsidized services and commodities like petrol, gas, electricity and water,” Al Awadhi said,

However, the daily said expats did not have access to public education and had to pay KD50 ($165) per person annually for health insurance.
