The Ministry of Health (MoH) assistant undersecretary for legal affairs Dr Mahmoud Al-Abdulhadi and Indian Ambassador to Kuwait HE Sunil Jain signed an historic agreement on Nurses recruitment to Kuwait, which will be done through official government agencies. Dr Jamal Mansour Al-Harbi, assistant undersecretary for medical services affairs at the MoH was also present during the signing ceremony.

According to the agreement signed, Kuwait MoH will recruit nurses only through the three State-run recruiting agencies as a) Non-Resident Keralites’ Affairs Department (NORKA-ROOTS), Thiruvananthapuram; b) Overseas Development and Employment Promotion Consultants Ltd. (ODEPC), Thiruvananthapuram; and c) Overseas Manpower Corporation Limited (OMCL), Chennai.

Earlier on May 1st, India government banned recruitment of nurses through private agencies due to wide spread corruption in the recruitment process. An Indian delegation comprising of NORKA and ODEPC top officials visited Kuwait in April 2015 in this regard to finalize basic modalities with the Kuwait MoH.

A Kuwaiti delegation will visit Kerala in the second week of December and hold talks with Norka officials on follow-up action. There is a consensus that only a nominal amount may be charged from candidates for jobs in the MoH as recruitment fee, an amount that does not exceed KD 100.
