Terminated Expat Workers to be Deported
Category: Kuwait Local News

Kuwait is studying a proposal to force a foreign worker to leave the country if he or she is sacked by their employer. This step comes as the state mulls ways to cut its expatriate population.

Under the current law, a worker who loses his job has three months to find another one or leave the country. This condition allows expatriate workers to remain in Kuwait, hampering efforts to adjust the country’s demographic imbalance, according to a recent study presented to the Supreme Council for Planning and Development (SCPD).

In order to make the proposed condition applicable, a worker would only be entitled to his financial claims once he terminates his residency visa and leaves the country, the study suggests.
